Frequently Asked Questions

How much Ultrasound Costs?

The cost of private ultrasound in the UK  varies and starts 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 in Harley Street will be significantly higher than the same in our clinic in 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.

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 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.

How do I prepare for an ultrasound scan?

Preparation depends on the type of scan you’re having. For some scans, you may need to drink plenty of water beforehand to ensure a clear image of your bladder. We will provide specific instructions when you book your appointment.

Is ultrasound safe? Are there any risks involved?

Ultrasound is a safe and non-invasive imaging technique that uses sound waves to create images of the inside of your body. It does not involve any radiation exposure. There are no known risks associated with ultrasound scans, even during pregnancy unlike CT and MRI examinations.

What can I expect during an ultrasound scan?

During a scan, a sonographer will apply a water-based gel to your skin and use a transducer to capture images of the area of interest. You may feel slight pressure, but the procedure is generally painless. The sonographer will explain the images and provide a report for you and your doctor.

What are the benefits of having an ultrasound scan?

Ultrasound is a valuable tool for diagnosing various conditions, monitoring pregnancies, and guiding procedures. It can help identify tumors, cysts, inflammation, and other abnormalities in different parts of the body. Ultrasound is also used to assess blood flow and guide biopsies or other interventions.

Can ultrasound detect cancer or other diseases?

While ultrasound cannot definitively diagnose all types of cancer, it can often identify suspicious areas or abnormalities that may warrant further investigation. In some cases, ultrasound is used in conjunction with other imaging techniques or biopsies to confirm a diagnosis.

What is Medical Ultrasound?

Ultrasonography or sonogram is a non-invasive, painless, diagnostic procedure utilising high-frequency sound waves. The sound waves are bouncing on the internal organs to produce images of the body’s these 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.

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. You can find more detailed information on what is an ultrasound scan page.

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 gallbladder for gallstones or kidney for kidney stones. So diagnostic ultrasounds are being used, depending on gestational age,  to visualise the unborn baby for any abnormality, exclude ectopic, evaluate gestational age, the placenta, the amniotic fluid, the umbilical cord,  the maternal uterus, cervix and ovaries.
Pregnancy ultrasound scans or prenatal ultrasounds are very common and being carried in any stage of the pregnancy.
