I obtained my Bachelors degree in Radiography from the University of Hertfordshire in 2003 after which I was employed at the East and North Herts NHS Trust. I commenced my Ultrasound training the following year and obtained my post graduate Diploma in summer of 2006 from South Bank University. The following 4 years at the East and North Herts Trust were invaluable for me to consolidate my ultrasound experience. During those years I became proficient at obstetric, gynaecological, abdominal, testicular and vascular ultrasound.

Ultrasound does not travel well in bowel or gas so you can not fully evaluate abdominal organs such as stomach and bowel or organs obscured by bowel.
It can also be hard to fully visualise internal anatomy of large patients as the sound has further to travel and therefore the returning echoes are weaker.
We are conveniently located in the heart of London, just a few minutes’ walk from Notting Hill Gate station, in a cobbled cul-de-sac off Kensington Mall in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
We offer same day and emergency after hours and weekend appointments in a clean and caring environment, to suit your needs.
Unlike some of our competitors we provide you with a report while you wait to fast track any potential treatment.
We have years of experience in medical ultrasound. Experience gained working for flagship NHS trusts alongside leaders in the field of diagnostic medical imaging including general ultrasound, urology, musculoskeletal, gynaecology, pelvis, testicular and vascular examinations. You can, therefore be assured that your health is in good hands.

Diagnostic Medical ultrasound or medical sonography as otherwise known is a painless imaging technique utilising sound waves to produce internal images of the body.
It is called ultrasound as the sound frequency being used is at the region of 1 to 20MHz. The human ear cant can’t hear these frequencies.
The sound waves are produced by the transducer or the probe as most commonly known. As they travel through the body they bounce back to the transducer due to various sound transmissions differences in tissues. The returning echoes are picked up by the probe and a powerful computer analyses the echoes and creates the 2d image on the screen.
There are various kinds of ultrasound scans that can be performed and each looks at different organs of the body such as tendons, muscles, joints, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries to confirm or exclude possible pathology.
Unlike Ct and MRI, ultrasound does not use radiation and therefore is pregnancy friendly. It is also live and is ideal for musculo-skeletal exams to evaluate moving joints.
IUS London specialises in diagnostic private ultrasound scans to provide you with quick diagnosis and the much-needed reassurance about your health, within a convenient location. The cost of a private ultrasound scan shouldn’t be prohibited when it comes to someone’s wellbeing. This is why our prices are competitive and affordable with no compromise to the level of care. The price you see is the price you pay with no hidden extras. We have hundreds of happy clients including GP’s, consultants, radiologists and midwives to name a few. Some of our clients choose us when large, well established ultrasound scanning companies failed them in diagnostic accuracy and especially aftercare. We offer ultrasound scan appointments via our online booking system or on the phone. We do not charge a deposit or a cancellation fee as we care more about our clients and we respect their decision to decide what is best for them without concern about the ultrasound scan deposit they already paid.
Our London ultrasound scan clinic now offers emergency on-call ultrasound services.
We understand that health problems can arise any time of day and night. The NHS does not always compliment their physical examination with an emergency ultrasound scan due to availability of equipment and staff.
If you were to require an emergency ultrasound scan, whether it be late evening during weekends and Saturdays or all day Sunday then please call 07539 290816 in order to see our availability and arrange a convenient time. Please see our emergency London ultrasound scan page for more information.
