Prenatal and medical ultrasound scans
Ultrasound scans are a completely non-invasive method of diagnosing and monitoring conditions in many different areas of the body.
Many health tests for both men and women use ultrasound to give doctors a better picture of what is going on inside your body. While most commonly associated with pregnancy scans, ultrasound tests are often used in diagnostic imaging for health issues in the organs and soft tissue.
Private ultrasound scans work by using the same technology as sonar in ships and submarines. They use high frequency sound waves which bounce from the probe to your organs and back to the microphone. This then produces detailed images of the inside of your body.
Ultrasound is used in a wide variety of medical scans including:
- Prenatal scans
- Breast ultrasound
- Gynaecological ultrasound
- Testicular screen
- Endoscopic ultrasound
- Musculoskeletal ultrasound
At Parkhill Health Care, we offer private ultrasound screening for both pregnancy and medical screening to our patients in Bolton and across Greater Manchester.
