Ultrasound Plus offers a comprehensive private musculoskeletal ultrasound scan service that is available to people who are experiencing pain, swelling, or discomfort in their ankle or foot. Every foot scan and ankle scan is carried out by one of our professional sonographers using the latest technology in our state-of-the-art clinics across England.
We provide a varied MSK ultrasound service, but by splitting our offering into more localised scans, you should be able to locate the MSK scan that is most suitable to you in a faster timeframe, allowing you to get a diagnosis and start treatment faster if necessary.
Ultrasound scans on the foot or ankle can be used to identify and diagnose a number of health conditions in the lower leg area, including:
Our expert sonographers can carry out a diagnostic ultrasound scan, but it’s your GP who will need to review the scan in order to identify the source of pain or discomfort. We will give you a copy of your scan, but it’s your responsibility to pass the details onto your GP so they can arrange any further tests or scans if necessary.
(Includes booking deposit of £30)
The non-invasive nature of an ultrasound scan means it’s a pain-free experience for almost everyone who has one. Our expert sonographers use equipment that transforms soundwave echoes into detailed soft tissue images.
The most discomfort you’re likely to feel is the cold gel that’s applied to your skin to allow the ultrasound machine to move smoothly over the skin.
An appointment for a scan of the foot or ankle at an Ultrasound Plus clinic will typically be completed within 20 minutes.
Ultrasound Plus offers MSK ultrasound scans to anyone over the age of 18. There’s no need to get a referral from your GP for this – simply book online. We would recommend you tell your GP of your intention to have a private ultrasound scan so they can be prepared to examine the results at a later appointment.
Private MSK ultrasound scans at Ultrasound Plus cost start from £110. Some health insurers may cover this cost for you, but you will need to check with them first before you book an appointment.
