Ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging tool which uses high frequency sound waves to create image of the body.
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.

What to Expect When You Visit Us
Understandably, children can be a little nervous about having an Ultrasound. We’ve made this animated video to talk them through what to expect when having an Ultrasound with Queensland X-Ray.
We cover what Ultrasounds are used for, what is likely to happen before, during and after the appointment as well as how long it might take…don’t worry, it’s all pretty easy! We look forward to seeing you at one of our many practices soon.
Technology and Team
Any of our regional practices are able to ultrasound your child. However, in Brisbane we have practices who specialise in this area (Upper Mount Gravatt and Greenslopes Obstetric and Paediatric suites).
