General Scans

General Scans

General ultrasound scanning is used to help diagnose conditions including stones, infections, tumours, congenital abnormalities (these are abnormalities that you have been born with) and problems related to the prostate gland in men. Many conditions can be diagnosed with general ultrasound scanning as the real time imaging allows for a detailed examination of the affected area. This is particularly useful for demonstrating many causes throughout the body. Ultrasound maybe one of the investigations you require, however you should consult your GP to ensure that any other investigations can be arranged.
