Ultrasound is also called Sonography or Diagnostic Medical Sonography. It is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within your body. Most ultrasound examinations are done using a sonar device outside your body, though some ultrasound examinations involve placing a device inside your body.

Ultrasound is recommended depending on the symptoms and for:

  • The assessment of a breast lump
  • The assessment of the foetus inside the uterus during pregnancy
  • The evaluation of the thyroid gland
  • The diagnosis of cancer
  • The diagnosis of infections
  • The diagnosis of a gallbladder disease
  • Assessing abnormalities of muscles and tendons

How to prepare:

Most of the times, no special preparation is required and it depends on which area of your body needs to be examined.

Gallbladder Examination: Avoid eating and drinking for up to 6 hours before the test.

Pelvic Ultrasound: Drink lots of water and do not urinate before the scan is performed, which allows for the better visualisation of the uterus, ovaries or the prostate.
