Ultrasound scans

At Prime Health you can get an ultrasound scan quickly and efficiently. Our service is built around your needs and your life and will enable you to get diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible.


At Prime Health we understand that if you need an ultrasound, you want it quickly, or at a time convenient to you. You also want reassurance that the quality of the ultrasound scan is high and that the report produced will provide your health specialist with the information they need to get your treatment underway and you back on the road to recovery, fast.

We provide a first-class diagnostic service and have a huge amount of experience in delivering high-quality ultrasound scans which are carried out and interpreted and reported by highly experienced specialist radiologists.

Ultrasound is used to study soft tissue structures and can investigate, identify and diagnose a wide range of medical conditions.  It can sometimes complement other forms of diagnostic scans and because it provides real-time live imaging it’s highly effective as a guide during a procedure like a joint injection.

We offer ultrasound scans at short notice to people with private medical insurance or those who simply wish to pay for the convenience of being seen quickly and efficiently.

What is an ultrasound scan?

An ultrasound scan creates a live image of internal organs using sound waves of a frequency above the audible range of the human ear. A small hand-held sensor pressed carefully against the skin surface generates sound waves and detects any echoes reflected off the surfaces and tissues of our internal organs. The sensor can be moved over the skin to view the organs from different angles. The images are displayed on a screen and recorded for subsequent study.

If you are having an ultrasound, you may have questions about the experience. We understand this and have produced a comprehensive number of Frequently Asked Questions regarding ultrasound scans. From how to prepare for a scan, to what to expect during the scan to ensure you are confident and comfortable about it. If you still have questions when you come in for your scan, we’re always happy to help.
