Diagnostic Ultrasound

An ultrasound scan is a medical procedure. It captures live images from inside your body using high-frequency sound waves. It’s also known as sonography.

What are the benefits of choosing a private ultrasound?

Going private not only gives you the flexibility to work around your schedule. It also gives you faster diagnostic and earlier information. There are many reasons why going private may be the best solution for you. With the recent pandemic and many organisations dealing with months of backlog, the long wait times can often lead to a delay in diagnostics. This often leads to an increase in anxiety for many people.
