Pet ultrasound technology to assist in examination and diagnosis
Paul McCarthy and Jonathon Nott are our resident ultrasonographers. With many years of experience and a powerful Mylab 5 ultrasound machine, we can provide a thorough examination of the abdomen and thorax. Other uses include examination of tendons, tumours and periocular swellings. Basic echocardiography can be performed which can diagnose many cardiac conditions such as pericardial effusions and assessing heart chamber size and contractility.
Ultrasound guided fine needle aspirates can be performed aiding diagnosis and drainage of effusions.
If there is a condition that you think may benefit from ultrasound, do not hesitate to give us a call to discuss the case and see if we can help.
