Diagnostic Imaging / Ultrasound

Diagnostic imaging, also called medical imaging, is the use of certain technologies to produce images of internal structures of the body for the purpose of accurate diagnosis. With ultrasound technologies, which employ sound waves to visualize body tissues, a doctor can see problems with organs, vessels, and tissues without needing to make an incision.

Ultrasound scanning is used in a variety of diagnostic procedures, from assessing the risk of heart disease, assessing arterial thickening, and blockages in arteries and veins in the lower limbs, to the investigation of the reproduction system. The renal tract, liver, and even musculoskeletal and sports injuries can all utilise ultrasound scanning technology.

COVID-19 Update: During the current situation with the Coronavirus, My Medica aims to continue to provide care for its patients. We will be encouraging video call appointments to reduce face to face contact and unnecessary travel until the situation improves.

Our clinical rooms

Abdominal Ultrasound is used to diagnose multiple conditions. The main organs visualized with ultrasound in the upper abdomen are: the liver, the gallbladder, the pancreas, the kidneys and the spleen.
Follicular tracking is used to evaluate the number and size of the ovarian follicles during your cycle. The main purpose of the follicle tracking scan is to monitor your fertility, that is that you are ovulating and producing eggs. It can also be used to confirm the best time to conceive.
We provide the complete spectrum of pregnancy scans. You may want to know the sex of your baby, or you had a previous miscarriage and need reassurance, or you require a detailed screening for a chromosomal abnormality, such as Down Syndrome.
A liver ultrasound is a safe and quick scan that uses sound waves to produce detailed images of your liver. These images can be analyzed by a radiologist to help check for liver conditions like fatty liver and hepatocellular carcinoma.
A renal ultrasound produces images of your kidneys. It lets us check the size, shape and health of the kidneys, and can help us to diagnose a range of conditions, like kidney stones or cysts.
Musculoskeletal scans can evaluate shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet. Ultrasound is a dynamic examination, and therefore the muscles, tendon, and soft tissue can be evaluated in real time and under movement.
Ultrasounds can image the body in greater spatial detail than MRI and can image parts of the body whilst they are in motion to provide more information. Because of its ability to image moving objects, ultrasound can be used to guide injections into muscles or joints with high precision for maximum benefit.
Ultrasound is regularly being used to evaluate abdominal aortic aneurysms.
Frequently used if a lump has been found in the breast, ultrasounds use high frequency sound waves to detect what’s inside the breast. Ultrasounds can detect if these lumps are solid, or filled.
A thyroid ultrasound is used to diagnose and monitor thyroid nodules, and thyroid cancer management.
A renal ultrasound is a simple scan that can be carried out to produce images of your bladder, kidneys, ureter, and prostate (in men). It lets us check the size, shape and health of these organs, and can help us to diagnose a range of conditions, like kidney stones, urinary incontinence and any narrowing of the ureter.
