An USG or Ultrasound scan uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images and detect problems with organs, vessels, and tissues in the body. It’s also known as sonography. Ultrasound uses no radiation and hence it is very safe for pregnant women.
An ultrasound scan is mainly performed for:
Monitoring unborn babies
Diagnosing a condition or guiding a surgeon during certain procedures.
Monitoring fetal growth and fetal abnormalities.
Diagnosing liver cirrhosis.
Evaluating the thyroid gland.
Detecting problems with lymph nodes.
Detecting any tumour or a cyst in ovaries, uterus (womb), testes, breasts, kidneys etc.
Diagnosing problems withblood vessels, joints, ligaments etc.
The Machine at Medcare Institute of Diagnostics is equipped with high end transducers.
Specialized studies for detecting arterial or venous thrombosis are performed to assess blood flow to various parts of the body like limbs, kidneys, uterus, etc.
Ultrasound guided procedures like aspirations and biopsies are routinely performed here.
Pls note: Ultrasound facility is available in the Chembur and Byculla centres. However, scanning of pregnant women is only done at our Byculla centre.
We may have to reschedule or cancel appointments at times because of reasons beyond our control – short-supply or no supply of the isotope used for the scan from an external source, machine breakdowns, etc.
As we have no control over this situation, Medcare Diagnostics would not be held liable for any harm or loss arising out of such cancellations.
