diagnostic ultrasound

Private ultrasound imaging for diagnosis musculoskeletal complaints.

We understand the importance of timely and accurate diagnoses as well as effective treatment options, and we strive to provide you with comprehensive care right here at our clinic.

With our state-of-the-art ultrasound technology and a team of skilled medical professionals, we are equipped to address a wide range of musculoskeletal issues. Whether you are experiencing joint pain, tendonitis, ligament injuries, or other similar concerns, our ultrasound services can help identify the underlying causes and guide appropriate treatment plans.

One of the significant advantages of our service is that you do not require a referral from a general practitioner (GP). We have streamlined the process to ensure that you can access our services directly, saving you valuable time and allowing you to take control of your healthcare decisions. By removing the need for a GP referral, we aim to provide a more convenient and efficient experience for you.

During your ultrasound examination, our highly trained practitioner will use non-invasive techniques to visualise the affected area, providing detailed images that aid in accurate diagnoses.

With this information, our experienced physicians can then determine the most appropriate course of treatment for your specific condition.In addition to diagnostic imaging, we are also able to offer ultrasound guided injections, which allow for precise and targeted delivery of medications or other therapeutic agents to the affected area. This technique enhances the effectiveness of treatment and ensures optimal outcomes for our patients.

At our clinic, we prioritise your comfort, privacy, and overall well-being. Our private ultrasound services provide a discreet and relaxed environment, where you can discuss your concerns openly with our compassionate healthcare professionals. We believe in patient-centred care and aim to provide personalised attention to each individual.
