The ultrasound scan is a medical non-invasive diagnostic procedure for clinical investigation. An ultrasound machine generates a non-radioactive mechanical sound wave of a higher frequency inaudible to the human ear from a transducer(Probe) made up of piezoelectric crystals. The wave penetrates through various tissues of the human body at different velocities due to the difference in densities of every tissue. As a results, the reflected sound waves(echoes) is received by the probe at different velocities. The difference in velocities is used by a computerized algorithm to generate a corresponding gray scale real time image. A trained sonographer or radiologist interprets the image and reports on the diagnostic findings.
Ultrasound scan do not have any adverse health effects on patients unlike X-Rays which are ionization radiation with well documented adverse effects.
The Department undertake these examinations.
Patients can check gestation age, foetal sex determination with 100% accuracy, foetal weight, presentation, liquor and umbilical artery doppler. At 20 weeks of gestation, anomaly scan is done to rule out any gross congenital anomaly.
Patients can check for fibroids, Polyps, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome(PCOS), Premature Ovarian Failure(POF), Uterine Adenomyosis, and many gynecological pathologies.
Liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal, peritoneal, spleen and general abdominal examination.
Specifically for prostate, urinary bladder and kidneys.
Breast, scrotal, thyroid, and superficial organs.
Our services are available from Monday to Friday 8:00am-5pm and on Saturdays from 8:0am to 12pm.
