Ultrasound imaging is a safe, non-invasive technique which uses sound waves to produce pictures of the organs in the body. Spectra Heath offers a wide range of ultrasound services including general body examinations, doppler examinations for the imaging of vessels as well as obstetrics and gynaecological cases.
We also undertake ultrasound guided interventions. With an adjustable LCD flat panel ultrasound machine, our patients feel at ease and comfortable during every examination.
During your ultrasound, you will lie comfortably on your back on an examination table that can tilt and move to accommodate the image required. A clear, water-based gel is applied to the skin to facilitate contact. The technician presses a wand against your skin, moving over the area of interest to create images of the inside of the body. This normally takes from 10 to 20 minutes.
