Groin Ultrasound scan

Advance Detailed Groin Ultrasound Scan - Price: £345

Groin ultrasound scan is a versatile diagnostic tool used to assess a range of conditions affecting the groin area, including lymph nodes, hernias, appendicitis, and vascular structures such as the femoral vein and artery. Here’s why each of these components might be evaluated using a groin ultrasound scan:

Lymph Nodes: Groin ultrasound can assess the size, shape, and characteristics of lymph nodes in the groin region. Enlarged or abnormal lymph nodes may indicate infection, inflammation, or malignancy. Evaluating lymph nodes is particularly important in cases of suspected lymphadenopathy or lymphadenitis.

Hernias: Inguinal hernias, the most common type of hernia, occur in the groin area when abdominal contents protrude through a weak spot in the abdominal wall. Groin ultrasound can visualize the hernia sac, assess its size and contents, and determine the presence of complications such as bowel obstruction or strangulation.

Appendicitis: While the appendix is not located in the groin, the pain associated with appendicitis can sometimes be felt in the lower abdomen and groin region. Groin ultrasound may be used as part of the diagnostic workup for suspected appendicitis to rule out other potential causes of pain and discomfort.

Vascular Structures: The femoral vein and artery are major blood vessels located in the groin area. Groin ultrasound can assess blood flow, detect abnormalities such as blood clots (deep vein thrombosis) or arterial stenosis, and aid in the diagnosis of conditions such as peripheral arterial disease or venous insufficiency.

Overall, groin ultrasound scans provide detailed imaging of the structures and organs in the groin area, allowing healthcare providers to accurately diagnose and manage a variety of medical conditions. It is a safe, non-invasive, and effective imaging modality that plays a critical role in patient care and treatment planning. If you are experiencing symptoms or have concerns related to your groin area, consult with a healthcare provider who can determine if a groin ultrasound scan is appropriate for further evaluation and diagnosis.

Absolutely amazing service. Sonographer checked absolutely everything while explaining what she was doing and seeing on screen at every step, really put my mind at ease when the NHS couldn't. I strongly recommend.

Very fast and great service. I was seen as soon as I walked through and the staff were welcoming. I was nervous as it’s my first time getting an ultrasound on my breasts but the doctor made me feel more at ease. Would definitely recommend.

I had an ultrasound for a worrying neck lump and wait time on NHS was so long I decided it was worth paying for a private scan. I was able to self refer. I saw Reza who put me at ease and was very thorough and talked me through his findings. I later received a detailed report. I paid £195 and think it was definitely worth it and wouldn’t hesitate to use this service again.

Absolutely first class. An extremely competent and patient friendly operation with the very best equipment, and available for urgent appointments. The doctor carried out the scan efficiently and explained everything, attentive to all my concerns and questions. The booking was easy, there was no wait and the doctor was kind enough to send me the report on the same day for an urgent hospital consultation. I used London Private Ultrasound because my consultant's hospital had no available slots and I am very glad that I did.

Great clinic - clinicians who listen, are thorough and highly professional. Very little waiting time and both my diagnosis and procedure (Baker cyst drainage and steroid injections) were carried out to a high standard and everything dealt with in a few days. I have had very little after pain and made a quick recovery. I was hesitant about going private and spending the money - I am neither wealthy nor health insured - but it has been well worth it to be pain free and get on with my life. Highly recommended.
