There is no preparation for the hand ultrasound scan.
Our Ultrasound Specialists will explain the procedure before your scan. When you expose your hand, you will be guided to sit on the examination chair. A small amount of water-based gel will be applied to your hand. Our specialist will move the probe on your skin to produce diagnostic ultrasound images. You will not feel any discomfort during your ultrasound scan. A hand ultrasound scan is regularly completed within 15-20 minutes. Our Sonographer will recommend the best course of action, depending on the ultrasound scan findings.
You will receive your results verbally during and after the scan. However, the Sonographer will examine the relevant images after your appointment and prepare a written report after your scan or within 24 hours with any recommended actions. The report will be sent to you so that you can discuss the findings with your doctor, if required.
There are no risks or side effects associated with the Hand ultrasound scan. Ultrasound does not use any radiation.
Urgent health conditions can happen at any time of the day or night. In London Private Ultrasound, we offer emergency hand ultrasound service late evenings, during weekends, Saturdays, or Sundays.

My partner went to the clinic to have three different scans today.The doctor was great. He explained the findings while was doing the scans. He gave a lot of advices about the blood tests to perform in order to explore the findings further. The clinic is clean and the prices are really competitive. I highly recommend the clinic.

I am very satisfied with the service I received. I had two appointments, both scheduled at very short notice due to anxiety over symptoms similar to a previous DVT. Two thorough scans and a full explanation of the results put my mind at ease. The professional yet friendly approach of everyone I met made it a stress-free experience for me. Highly recommended.

I had a good experience with LPU, the premises were simple and there is no fancy waiting room but what you do get is a caring, quality, professional service at a competitive price, which I think really is what most people want. My concerns and questions were answered, my report was clear and the staff were kind and friendly. Would return and would recommend.
