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.
