What is an Ultrasound Scan?

Ultrasound Scan, also known as Sonogram, is the medical imaging or scanning of the body parts using high-frequency sound waves that pass through the body tissues and produce images on the screen. The ultrasound scan can be external, internal, or endoscopic where the probe of the ultrasound moves externally on the surface of the skin, inserted inside the body, or attached to the endoscope respectively.

Since ultrasound scans do not involve exposure to any radiation and only sound waves are used, the patient is not exposed to harmful ionising radiation.

What is POCUS?

We offer POCUS, also referred to as Point Of Care UltraSound (or sonography). We use either microchip-based ultra-portable or traditional piezoelectric ultrasonographic machines to examine and diagnose any underlying conditions in the body of the patient.

Not only does it help further assess a clinical problem that you have, it’s also commonly done to assess the important basic parameters of a fetus during pregnancy. The practice of POCUS saves the trouble of a patient having to make an appointment and waiting for the report of an ultrasound. It is now being used to quickly assess emergencies such as chest pain, pleural effusion, kidney stones / retention of urine and also musculoskeletal conditions. It has also been used around the world during COVID19 to assess the lungs and quickly triage suspected COVID19 patients.
