What is an Ultrasound Scan?

When are Ultrasound scans used?

A doctor may refer you for an ultrasound scan to investigate pain, most commonly in the abdomen.

What types of Ultrasounds can I get?

Abdominal, pelvic and testes ultrasounds are the most common form of ultrasounds that are performed at Affidea Ireland.

Is an Ultrasound safe?

There are no known harmful effects in standard diagnostic ultrasounds. No ionising radiation is involved.

Do I need to prepare for the Ultrasound scan?

For some ultrasound scans, some preparation may be required. Detailed instructions are given at the time of booking your appointment. For certain scans, you may be required to fast, whilst for others, you will be asked to drink several glasses of water prior to examination. Please check with a Affidea staff member if you are unsure as to the preparation required for your scan.

What happens during the Ultrasound scan?

During the procedure, you will be asked to lie, usually face up, on an examination table. A gel is applied to the skin and an ultrasound probe (transducer) is moved over the gel to acquire the images.

How long will the Ultrasound scan take?

The examination takes approximately 20 minutes.

How do I get the results?

A report will be issued to your referring doctor detailing the findings from the scan usually within 48 hours of the scan taking place.
