Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Medical Ultrasound?

Ultrasonography or sonography is a non-invasive, painless diagnostic procedure utilising high-frequency sound waves. The sound waves bounce on the internal organs to produce images of the body’s internal organs, such as the ovaries, gallbladder and blood vessels. The images of the organs are displayed in black and white on a state of the art monitor attached to the scanner. In medicine, it is commonly the first line of medical diagnosis when human body pathology is suspected due to its ability to detect abnormalities early on before they have time for symptoms and signs to appear and therefore instigate faster treatment.

Why is it called Ultrasound?

It is called ultra sound as the high-frequency sound waves used are at the region of 1 to 20MHz. A sound frequency that the human ear can’t hear. The technology uses the same frequencies used by the navy sonar and by animal echolocation, such as dolphins and bats. 

 What is a Private Ultrasound?

 A private scan is a medical imaging examination undertaken by a private healthcare provider, where the cost of the examination is undertaken solely by the patient or through private health insurance. There are numerous private diagnostic imaging providers that offer various scans including private ultrasound, CT and MRI scans.

Why book a private diagnostic ultrasound in London?

The main reason patients choose to use our private scan clinic in London is to:

  • Reduce NHS ultrasound waiting times,
  • Rapid access to quality private healthcare
  • Get faster results and treatment
  • Choose a flexible and more suitable time
  • Reduce anxiety associated with not knowing
  • Convenience
  • Expert sonographers
  • Avoid visiting the hospital due to infection risks

Can I pay for a private ultrasound?

Yes, you can pay for yourself. We offer affordable access to medical scans for people with or without medical insurance.

Are ultrasounds covered by private health insurance?

If you have medical insurance, your ultrasound test might be covered. Please confirm with your medical insurance provider before booking your appointment.

What is the cost of a private ultrasound?

The cost of a private ultrasound in the UK varies from just below £100 to more than £400. There are multiple reasons for this wide price range, such as location, the type of scan and the size of the company. For example, a private ultrasound scan on Harley Street will be significantly higher than the same in our clinic at Notting Hill Gate. As you can imagine, you pay more for the location and not for higher quality service. If you are paying for yourself, you will find the cost of our scanning services very affordable.

How can I pay for the Private Ultrasound?

You can pay for your private ultrasound using cards or cash.  We accept cash and all major debit and credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.

Do I need a referral from my doctor to book an appointment?

No, you do not need a referral. You can directly book an appointment for a sonogram with us through our website or by phone. However, we encourage you to share the results of your scan with your doctor for further advice or treatment.

Are Private Ultrasounds Safe?

Private ultrasound scans are generally safe. The diagnostic accuracy, however, depends on the experience and expertise of the operator. 

You should also make sure that your chosen clinic should be CQC.

Private Pregnancy Scans London

An obstetric scan is the same as a ‘normal’ scan but is being used to evaluate the anatomy and overall health of your unborn baby instead of looking at other organs such as the gallbladder for gallstones or the kidney for kidney stones.

So diagnostic ultrasounds are being used, depending on gestational age, to visualise the unborn baby for any abnormality, exclude ectopic, and evaluate gestational age, the placenta, the amniotic fluid, the umbilical cord, the maternal uterus, cervix, and ovaries.

When can I have a scan?

Pregnancy ultrasound scans or prenatal ultrasounds are very common and are carried out at any stage of the pregnancy.

What are the NHS hospitals waiting times for ultrasound procedures?

Depending on the area you live, the waiting times for ultrasound scanning procedures is 6 weeks and some times more. It is well documented that delays in ultrasound imaging can delay diagnosis of cancer and other diseases which can affect the life expectancy and well being of individuals.
