Ultrasound Plus provides a professional private musculoskeletal ultrasound scan service for people suffering from pain and discomfort in their elbow or forearm. Our lower arm MSK ultrasound scans are performed by our team of expert sonographers in our state-of-the-art clinics, with prices starting from £110.
We offer a wide range of musculoskeletal ultrasound scan services at our clinics, and we’ve split our services into specific categories to make it easier for you to find the service you need and get answers to your health questions.
A forearm and elbow scan can be used to identify a range of medical conditions and causes for issues, including:
Our arm ultrasound scan service can help to identify the cause of pain, swelling, and discomfort, but it’s important you speak to your GP about the results in order to confirm a diagnosis. They may suggest you have further tests carried out. It is your responsibility to pass the scan details on to your main healthcare provider.
(Includes booking deposit of £30)
MSK ultrasound scans use the echoes of sound waves to create a detailed image of soft tissue, such as muscle and fluid. This allows our sonographers to identify any abnormalities within your muscles or soft tissue.
The team then uses the very latest ultrasound imaging equipment to carry out accurate, non-invasive, pain free scans, via the application of a gel. Consequently, you can confidently say that you won’t experience any discomfort.
Typically speaking, an elbow or forearm ultrasound scan appointment will take no longer than 20 minutes.
We offer our arm ultrasound services to people over the age of 18. We don’t require a GP referral – although we do recommend you inform your doctor of your intention to have a private MSK ultrasound scan, and we also advise you share your results with them so they can determine if any other tests are required. It is your responsibility to share the results with your GP.
Prices for arm and elbow scans at Ultrasound Plus start from £110. We recommend that you check with your healthcare insurer whether your policy covers this if this is the route you intend on taking.
