Knee Ultrasound Unilateral

Knee Scans – Appointments at LPU London Clinic

London Private Ultrasound (LPU) offers a  to the male and female patients over 18 years old. Knee pain due to trauma and arthritis is the most common reason for having a knee ultrasound diagnostic examination.
In this scan a specialist practitioner will assess the main musculoskeletal structures in your knee, such as bones, cartilages, ligaments, and tendons.
Knee ultrasound is a dynamic, fast, and affordable scan for evaluation of the knee injuries, arthritis, or knee wear and tear due to its weight-bearing nature.

There is no preparation for the knee ultrasound scan.
Our Ultrasound Specialists will explain the procedure before your scan. When you expose your knee, you will be guided to lie on your back on the examination couch and bend your knee. A small amount of water-based gel will be applied to your knee. 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 knee 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 Knee ultrasound scan. Ultrasound does not use any radiation.

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.

My concerns and questions were answered, my report was clear and the staff were kind and friendly. Would return and would recommend.
