We provide paediatric ultrasound scans if you are concerned about your child’s health or your child has been referred by a GP. The scans can help diagnose a number of problems, which can be detected early on, such as digestive, kidney or liver health to help provide the correct course of treatment.
Congenital Hip Dislocation Scan
Hip screening for newborns can help diagnose developmental dysplasia, which is either some shallowness of the hip joint socket or complete dislocation of the hip. If this is not treated early enough it may lead to more serious physical disability in the child’s hips and back.
Ultrasound screening for congenital anomalies of the kidney
Kidney malformations may lead to problems with urine flow which may cause damage to kidneys over time if not detected early. This scan assesses any anomalies of the kidneys.
Ultrasound screening of the abdomen
If your child is suffering from acute abdominal pain, our Paeaditric Abdomen Scan is used to assess for:
- Chronic abdominal pain to detect for any tumours
- Intestinal intussusceptions ~ an entanglement of the intestines
- Acute pancreatitis which although rare is easy to miss without scanning
- Gallstones and kidney stones usually evident in older children
- Assess for excessive growth in ovaries for girl
This scan is helpful if there are painful lumps or swelling and diagnosies for hydrofoil, which is fluid around the testicles.
Our paediatric scans are available for newborns and children up to the age of 16.
