Private ultrasound scanning

Make an enquiry

Our private ultrasound scans are popular because everything is done quickly and conveniently under one roof. There’s no wait and you can have a doctor consultation before, and directly after, your scan to explain your results in detail with you.

Ultrasound services in the heart of Birmingham

People have ultrasound scans because a medical ultrasound scan can tell us more about what’s going on inside your body. They use high-frequency sound waves to create an accurate image that’s displayed on the monitor during your procedure. Our sonographers have had years of experience in sonography and we use state of the art equipment at Virgin Care Private, working hand in hand with our doctors to make sure you get the very best treatment.

Our ultrasound services in the city centre of Birmingham are here for:

  • Abdominal ultrasound scans to give us information about how your organs are functioning, like your liver, and should pick up any unusual lumps

  • Pelvic ultrasound services (includes uterus, ovaries, bladder and reproductive tracts)
  • Scrotal and prostate ultrasounds

  • Musculoskeletal ultrasounds (for example; shoulder, knee and elbow)Stress and anxiety at work 
  • Thyroid and other head and neck ultrasound scans
  • And more

During your ultrasound test, a small probe passes over the part of your body we’re taking a closer look at – the ultrasound procedure won’t cause any discomfort or pain, and the high-frequency waves it sends back will help to create a real-life image of what’s going on in your internal organs, muscles, glands and more.

A closer look at your changing body

We know that any new lump, pain or change in your body can cause a lot of sleepless nights. If you’ve found a lump in your breast, scrotum or in your abdomen, a private ultrasound scan helps to paint a clearer picture of whether or not the lump is fluid-filled and benign, and whether we need to carry out further testing with a biopsy.

Where we believe there may be a risk of ovarian cancer, we’ll carry out an ultrasound scan to give us the best chance of catching the disease early.

We can also carry out an ultrasound test on your liver which will help us check its health and recommend a treatment plan where there are signs of liver damage.
