Shoulder Ultrasound Scan
There are a number of reasons why you might want to have a private shoulder ultrasound scan. The most common reason for a shoulder ultrasound scan is shoulder pain and ultrasound of the shoulder is a fast, relatively cheap and dynamic way to examine the rotator cuff and is particularly useful in diagnosing shoulder impingement, shoulder instability and rotator cuff disorders.
Shoulder pain is very common and ultrasound is regularly being used to identify the reasons but NHS ultrasound scan waiting times are long and this is why our clients choose to have a private ultrasound scan, to achieve a quick diagnosis and subsequent treatment.

What should I expect during the shoulder ultrasound scan?
Before your ultrasound scan in London, our sonographer will discuss your reasons for your scan and will explain the ultrasound examination procedure. You will be asked to sit on a chair in front of the ultrasound scanner and expose your shoulder (a dressing gown will be provided for the ladies). The ultrasonic gel will be placed on your shoulder and the ultrasound probe will be moved in different directions to visualise the shoulder anatomical structures. You will be asked to move your arm during the scanning so that the sonographer can look at the affected area while it is in motion.
Our sonographer will explain the findings during and after the ultrasound scan and an ultrasound report will be issued to take away with you.
