Ultrasound imaging is a method of obtaining pictures of different organs inside the human body. It involves sending through and processing the reflections of sound waves inside a person’s body. These reflections are then processed by special instruments and powerful computers to create a picture of the organs.
The key advantages of ultrasound are that it is quick, gives real-time pictures and does not use x-rays or other types of radiation. As a result, it is particularly useful as a first-line diagnostic tool in many clinical situations These may include imaging abdominal, renal, small parts, breast, musculo-skeletal and vascular conditions.
Ultrasound is available at both the Cardiff Bay Clinic and The Vale Hospital.
