Ultrasound Scan Singapore - General & Vascular

General Ultrasound in Singapore allows evaluation of the internal organs and diagnose abnormalities without ionizing radiation.

Vascular Ultrasound in Singapore allows evaluation of blood flow in the arteries and veins of the body and to detect the presence, severity and specific location of disease. It is also used to diagnose blood clots in the veins of the arms and legs, a condition known as deep vein thrombosis or DVT.

Benefits:

  1. It is non-invasive and does not require exposure to radiation or contrast dye, which has a small risk of damage to the kidneys.

  2. Enables assessment of peripheral vascular disease (For example, narrowing or blockage of lower limb arteries)

Preparing for Ultrasound Scan

Having an ultrasound scan can be an exciting but somewhat daunting experience. Make sure to plan ahead to get the most out of the scan and feel in control of the journey. Here are some things to bear in mind when planning for your scan:

* Speak to your doctor prior to the scan: discuss the process and ask any questions that you may have.

* Bring along any other relevant medical records that your doctor may have requested.

* Ensure you are familiar with the specific instructions given for the scan - the time and whether there are any preparations that you need to do in advance.

* Plan for parking and transport: depending on the facility and its location, there might be limited parking available, or you may have to factor time into your journey in order to use public transport.

 

These simple steps will help to ensure that you get the most out of the ultrasound scan, and it will go a long way towards making the experience less stressful and more enjoyable.

Ultrasound Scans are a safe and non-invasive imaging procedure that is widely used to assess organs in the body. It works by using sound waves to create images of the inside of the human body which can be used for diagnosis purposes. There are no side effects or harmful radiation exposure associated with ultrasound scans, which means it is a very safe and reliable method for medical personnel to access information regarding organs, vessels and foetal development. At present, ultrasound scans are routinely used in Singapore to assess conditions such as pregnancy, abdominal pain, organ damage, and so on, making it an effective tool for medical diagnosis.
