"A sound body in a sharp mind"

Ultrasound

Ultrasonography (ultrasound scans) -General Electric LOGIQ® 5 ultrasound system

Ultrasound scanning uses high frequency sound waves to create an image of part of the inside of the body, such as the heart. As sound waves are used rather than radiation, the procedure is safe. Ultrasound scanning is particularly useful in obtaining diagnostic information for the following organs:

  • Thyroid gland- cysts, adenomas, carcinomas
  • Cervix- cysts, adenomas
  • Breast- cysts, adenomas
  • Abdomen- kidneys, spleen, liver, gall bladder, aortic aneurysm
  • Pelvis- bladder, ovaries, prostate
  • Carotid Doppler eg for carotid stenosis
  • Peripheral vessels and veins

Portable ultrasound (Titan)

Portable ultrasound machines are typically used in situations where space is limited, mobility is important, or the scanning must be done in the field.
It is used by many of our doctors including the gynecologists, cardiologists, endocrinologists and of course radiologists.
