Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that develops within a deep vein in the body, usually in the leg and ultrasound scans are commonly used to diagnose or exclude the existence of DVT. DVT usually occurs in a deep leg vein, a larger vein that runs through the muscles of the calf and the thigh.

Ultrasound of the carotid arteries is used to evaluate the main arteries of the neck that feed oxygenated blood to the brain. Sometimes, these vital arteries can be narrowed due to a build up of plaque. Narrowing of the vessels can increased the risk of stroke.

Ultrasound is regularly being used to evaluate abdominal aortic aneurysms. Abdominal aneurysm is a swelling of the aorta, the main blood vessel that brings blood for your heart to the rest of the body. The aorta is around 2.5 in the abdominal area, it can however swell to more than 5cm.

 

This private echocardiogram or echo for short is an ultrasound examination of your heart and surrounding blood vessels. The echo scan uses ultrasound waves like the scans performed in pregnant women to examine the unborn baby and is completely safe and painless.The echo scan will analyse the blood flow through the blood vessels, will assess the pumping function of the chambers in your heart as well as the function of your heart valves.

What are the benefits and risks of ultrasound examinations?

Benefits

  • Ultrasound scans are non-invasive.
  • An ultrasound exam should not be painful.
  • Ultrasound is widely available, easy-to-use and less expensive than other imaging modalities.
  • Ultrasound imaging is extremely safe and does not use any harmful ionizing radiation and this is why is the primary imaging modality in pregnancy.
  • Ultrasound scanning gives a clear picture of soft tissues and blood vessels that do not show up well on x-rays.
  • Ultrasound scanning is dynamic and can evaluate body structures in real time.

Risks

  • There are no known harmful effects on humans related to ultrasound scans.

What are the limitations of Ultrasound scan Imaging?

It can sometimes be hard to fully visualise the internal anatomy of large patients as the sound has further to travel and therefore the returning echoes are weaker.

Ultrasound likes soft, solid organs to travel through, therefore is not possible to evaluate structures such as bowel and stomach. The bowel can also obscure organs when it can be found between the organ and the ultrasound probe.

About Ultrasound Scans

Ultrasound imaging is a medical diagnostic technique where sound waves are being used to image various parts of the body.
Other terms for ultrasound imaging that are being used are sonograms, US and sonography.
Ultrasound is widely used these days as it is painless and safe for adults, children and foetuses. There are no side effects such as the ones associated with ionising radiation produced by CT and plain x-rays.
During the ultrasound scan, the sonographer rests a small probe over the skin. This probe produces sound waves i.e. pulsations that travel through your skin and inside your body. Part of the sound waves are being reflected back to the transducer and the computer analyses the returning echoes and produces the image on the screen. Medical ultrasonography uses the same principle as the sonar that the navy uses to detect submarines.
Ultrasound is being used to image mostly solid soft organs such as liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries, muscles and blood vessels and babies in the womb. It has, however, limited value in organs such lungs, bone, stomach and bowel/colon.
Ultrasound images are black and white but colour Doppler is being used to evaluate organ blood flow and blood vessels and this is what the red and blue colours on the screen are.
