Ultrasound

Queensland X-Ray offers a superior quality ultrasound service with highly trained staff and specialised equipment.

Our offering is unrivalled and forms the foundation of our promise to provide a clearer picture of your health. Ultrasound examinations can be performed on most parts of the body, and provide excellent information about a variety of conditions – from pregnancy to gallstones, varicose veins and even muscle tears. During an ultrasound examination sound waves are bounced back from parts of the body (like sonar) to give black and white (or in some cases colour) images. The sonographer uses a transducer (a hand-held device which produces and receives the sound waves) to produce the images. Ultrasound shows anatomy in “real-time” showing movement.

Ultrasound is particularly useful in pregnancy as there is no ionising radiation or known harmful effects.
