Service & Expertise

Expertise in Ultrasound Scans

An ultrasound scan is a simple test that involves taking pictures of the human body using sound waves.

The patient is asked to lie down on a scanning table.

During the examination gel is applied on the area to be examined. The gel allows the ultrasound probe, which produces the sound waves, to glide over the skin. The gel is water soluble and will wipe off with tissue easily. You may prefer to wear loose clothing, which you can easily move and adjust out of the way.

An ultrasound scan does not involve the use of X-rays and is a simple and painless procedure. As you may know ultrasound examinations are performed during pregnancy, which indicates the harmlessness of the procedure. The access to the service is via GP referral. We accept patients of 18 years of age and above.

The report will be posted and for Coventry & Rugby CCG patients sent electionically to your GP usually on the next working day. Please make an appointment to see your doctor to discuss the result. The scan appointment is not a consultation.

The report is sometimes requested by the hospital when a GP makes a referral. If you would prefer that we do not send the report to the hospital database on your doctors’ behalf, please let the ultrasonographer know when you attend your appointment.

A note will be made on your record to prevent this happening. The report will never be released to any third party without your consent.
