Ultrasound scans, also known as sonograms, use high-frequency sound waves to generate interior images of the body. Ultrasound scans may be used to view muscles or tendons, the heart or the uterus during pregnancy. This painless scan can be used as an effective imaging device and allows medical experts to get a clear idea of what injuries your client has.
A radiographer or sonographer will carry out the ultrasound scan using an ultrasound probe. This is a small piece of equipment that makes high-frequency sound waves which reverberate off parts of the body; allowing an image to be created. Your client and the radiographer can view the scan on a monitor screen as the procedure, which only takes between 15 and 45 minutes, is carried out.
Why are ultrasounds used for medical investigations?
Diagnostic ultrasounds can be a useful investigative service to identify the severity and nature of your client’s injuries in a personal injury case. MAPS Medical Reporting can arrange for one of our consultant radiographers to carry out a diagnostic ultrasound for your client at a time and location that is best suited for them. After the ultrasound scan, we will prepare and send the results to you as soon as possible, so that you can focus on the legal claim at hand.
