If you’re experiencing shoulder pain or discomfort in your upper arm area, Ultrasound Plus can carry out a private musculoskeletal ultrasound at one of our state-of-the-art clinics to try and identify the cause from just £110.
We offer a wide range of musculoskeletal scan services; however, if you’re experiencing pain in your upper arm specifically, an ultrasound scan of the surrounding area could be one of the fastest and easiest ways to diagnose the cause of the problem.
There are several conditions and injuries that can be diagnosed from an ultrasound scan on the shoulder, including but not limited to:
Whilst the Ultrasound Plus team are experts in sonography, a diagnosis will need to be confirmed by your GP. We will send you a detailed copy of the ultrasound scan, and it is your responsibility to pass this on to your GP so they can assess whether further investigative tests need to be carried out.
(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.
You can expect an MSK scan on the shoulder or upper arm to take approximately 20 mins from start to finish.
If you are over the age of 18, you can arrange an ultrasound scan for shoulder pain at one of our Ultrasound Plus professional clinics at a time that suits you. You do not need a referral from your GP to access our services, but we recommend you share the results with your GP. This is your responsibility.
A scan for a shoulder injury from Ultrasound Plus starts from £110. If you have private health insurance, you will need to check with your provider whether they will cover the cost of the scan within your policy.
