Hip Ultrasound Diagnostic Assessment
London Private Ultrasound (LPU) offers a hip and thigh ultrasound scan to the male and female patients over 18 years old. Hip pain due to Sport-related injuries, trauma, bursitis, or arthritis is the most common reason for having a hip ultrasound diagnostic examination.
