They have a wide range of applications and are commonly used for obstetric imaging; small parts imaging, including the breast, neck, and testes; abdominal and pelvic imaging; and musculoskeletal and vascular imaging. An ultrasound can also be used for guiding procedures like needle biopsies and injections, as it provides detailed, real-time information in the form of a moving image.
For more information on a specific scan please see the ultrasound menu items on this page.
All ultrasound patients are advised to arrive 15 minutes prior to their appointment time with their doctor’s referral or request form.
If you have a child under the age of 6, they will need to be supervised by an adult other than the patient. To ensure the examination is conducted accurately, children will not always be permitted in the room during an ultrasound. For more information, please visit this link by kidspot.com.au.
Images are generated with the use of a small hand-held ultrasound transducer. High-frequency sound waves, not audible to the human ear, are transmitted to the area of interest and the reflected signal is converted into an image. Qscan’s specialist Radiologists then review these images for diagnostic purposes.
Your scan time will vary depending on the complexity of the requested examination. Most simple ultrasound scans take approximately 15-20 minutes; however, more time is required for complex studies such as certain obstetric or vascular imaging.
When the scan is complete, you may need to wait while our Radiologist reviews the obtained images. Occasionally, further imaging may be required. Your Sonographer will advise you if this is the case.
All Qscan clinics offer ultrasound. The cost of your ultrasound depends on several factors, including the type of scan that has been requested. Please advise our friendly customer service team if you are a pension or health care cardholder, and will be able to advise you of all costs involved with your ultrasound, including any out-of-pocket costs (if relevant).
If your doctor has requested more than one ultrasound, these may need to be booked on separate days due to Medicare or different preparation requirements.
Our Customer Service Team will be able to advise you of all costs involved with your ultrasound including any out-of-pocket cost (if relevant).
After your ultrasound, your report and images will be sent electronically to your doctor.
