It is ideal for routine imaging of areas such as the abdomen and pelvis as well as pregnancy scans.

Frequently asked questions
You will most likely be asked to lie down on a table, with the section of your body exposed for the duration of the scan. Your sonographer will apply a cool, lubricating gel to your skin which will allow the probe to glide smoothly over the area.
The ultrasound scan will begin. Your sonographer will glide the probe over your skin, and the live images will be transmitted to a monitor and recorded. The process should take between 15 to 45 minutes. Following this, the gel will be wiped off your skin. You can put back on any clothing which you have taken off, and then return to your normal daily activities.
Your specialist will then review the images and follow up with a diagnosis and recommended treatment.
In short, MRIs, CT scans and x-rays use radiation, while ultrasounds do not.
