General Scans

Ultrasound imaging is a method of acquiring information about the inside of the body using high-frequency sound waves.

At Mourne Scan Clinic, we accept ultrasound referrals from G.P’s and all other relevant medical practitioners. We also accept self-referrals, however if you are unsure of what sort of ultrasound you need please speak to your G.P.

We recommend that you present your results to your healthcare professional whose contact details we take when you attend for your appointment.

All scans are performed by qualified sonographers with diagnostic scanning experience.
