Thyroid Parathyroid Ultrasound

Thyroid Parathyroid Ultrasound

No preparation. May be booked at any time during the day/evening.

A thyroid ultrasound can help measure the size and shape of the thyroid gland. Ultrasound also may be used to check the four parathyroid glands that lie behind or next to the thyroid.

The thyroid gland makes a hormone called thyroxine. This hormone controls how fast the body converts food into energy (metabolism). Parathyroid hormone (PTH) is made by the parathyroid glands. It controls the amount ofcalcium and phosphorus in the blood.

During a thyroid and parathyroid ultrasound, a small handheld device called a transducer is passed back and forth over the neck. This makes a picture of the thyroid gland and parathyroid glands.

Early Pregnancy Ultrasound

Why scan at 7 weeks?

An ultrasound is performed at this stage of pregnancy to confirm due date, the number of embryos and to visualise the embryo’s heart beating. Prior to 7 weeks it may be too early to acquire this information.

How is the scan performed?

To obtain to best images possible, this scan is routinely performed trans-vaginally. This examination is safe to perform during early pregnancy.

What will I see on the ultrasound?

At 7 weeks gestation a pregnancy sac should be seen within the uterus. Within this sac an embryo, heart motion and yolk sac should be visible. Approaching 8 weeks, early brain formation is identified with a black space in the head called the rhombencephalon.

Uncertain result/Follow up ultrasound.

Sometimes it may be too early to gather all the information required to confirm the stage of your pregnancy. In this situation you may be required to return for a repeat ultrasound in 7-14 days. Your doctor will inform you of the most appropriate time frame to return for this scan if required.

Routine 7 week IVF pregnancy ultrasound.

If you have completed an IVF cycle and have received a positive pregnancy result at day 16, a trans-vaginal ultrasound will be performed approximately 5 weeks following embryo transfer. This ultrasound will confirm the location of pregnancy and the number, size and heart motion of the embryo(s).

Ultrasound Pelvic & Transvaginal

A pelvic ultrasound assesses the female reproductive system, including the vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries and other pelvic structures. It can provide helpful information for those experiencing.

and, for those who require assessment of

Ultrasound Abdomen & Doppler

Ultrasound Abdomen & Doppler

Includes studies of the gall bladder, pancreas, spleen, liver, kidneys and aorta. If your appointment is in the morning, DO NOT eat or drink anything 12 hours prior to your examination. Preferred 4 hours fasting minimum. If your appointment is in the afternoon, for breakfast you may eat dry toast, black tea, black coffee, juice up to 9 a.m. Nothing to drink or eat after that. These instructions are important as we require you to have an empty stomach.

Please Do take your prescription medication as per your order from your Doctor and discuss with your Doctor for the same.

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

No preparation. May be booked at any time during the day.

Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints throughout the body. It is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears, and other soft tissue conditions. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not use ionizing radiation.

This procedure requires little to no special preparation. Leave jewelry at home and wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may be asked to wear a gown.

Orbit Ultrasound

Orbit Ultrasound

Orbit ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to measure and produce detailed images of your eye and eye orbit. The orbit is the socket in the skull that holds the eye. This test provides a much more detailed view of the inside of your eye than is possible during a routine eye exam.

Ultrasound is used primarily to assess internal structures of the globe, particularly when direct visualization is obscured by cataracts or haemorrhage.

Why Do I Need an Eye and Orbit Ultrasound?

Your eye doctor may order eye studies if you’re experiencing unexplained problems with your eyes or if you’ve recently sustained an injury or trauma to the eye area.

This procedure is helpful in identifying issues with the eyes and diagnosing eye diseases. For example, some issues the test can help identify include:

 

An eye and orbit ultrasound can also be used to help diagnose or monitor:

Your doctor can also use this procedure to measure the thickness and extent of a cancerous tumor and determine treatment options.

Peripheral Vascular Doppler USG

Peripheral Vascular Doppler USG

No preparation. May be booked at any time during the day.

Vascular ultrasound uses sound waves to evaluate the body’s circulatory system and help identify blockages in the arteries and veins and detect blood clots. A Doppler ultrasound study – a technique that evaluates blood flow through a blood vessel – is usually part of this exam. Ultrasound does not use ionizing radiation, has no known harmful effects, and provides images of soft tissues that don’t show up on x-ray images.

Little or no special preparation is required for this procedure. However, you may occasionally be asked to fast beforehand. Leave jewelry at home and wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may be asked to wear a gown.

Ultrasound Breast

Ultrasound Breast

No preparation. May be booked at any time during the day.

Breast ultrasound is an important modality in breast imaging. It is the usual initial breast imaging modality in those under 30 years of age in many countries.

Breast ultrasound is always correlated with the mammogram images before the ultrasound is done. The operator must know where the lesion is located in the breast and the nature of the lesion. What are you looking for and where is it located?In assessing for malignancy, is important to remember that we must use most suspicious feature of 3 modalities (pathology, ultrasound, mammography) to guide management.

Contrast Ultrasound

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) involves the administration of intravenous contrast agents containing microbubbles of perfluorocarbon or nitrogen gas. The bubbles greatly affect ultrasound backscatter and increase vascular contrast in a similar manner to intravenous contrast agents used in CT and MRI. Examples of ultrasound contrast agents available commercially include SonoVue (Bracco).

CEUS has the advantage over contrast-enhanced MRI and CT in patients with contraindications such as renal failure or contrast allergy. CEUS also allows for dynamic and repeat examinations.
