An ultrasound scanner uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of internal organs shown on a computer screen. Ultrasound scanning is commonly used in pregnancy, but is also useful to assess soft tissue lumps, identify muscle and tendon injuries and evaluate fluid and inflammation in the joints. An ultrasound may be recommended by your GP as the best way to diagnose certain conditions. The procedure is painless and most require no preparation; with Midland Health, our GP’s will put you at ease and talk you through every step of the way. For some conditions, it may be suggested you have an ultrasound guided injection. This procedure involves a local anaesthetic, so you will not be able to drive home after an appointment. Ultrasound results are available the same day to discuss with your doctor.
If you have any questions or concerns about an ultrasound which has been recommended, contact your Midland Health GP who will be happy to talk things through.
