Ultrasound Scan types performed at the Cotswold Diagnostic Clinic

Ultrasound is the highest resolution test available in musculoskeletal radiology, and that includes MRI scans.  It allows us to move structures whilst scanning (e.g. tendons and muscles), to compare both sides for subtle differences, to perform guided treatments, and to discuss your symptoms.

 

MUSCULOSKELETAL ULTRASOUND SCANS

We specialise in this type of ultrasound, which includes assessment of tendons, ligaments, muscles, hernias, nerves, bursae, joints, collections and haematomas, and lumps and bumps.

-

We can also perform guided injections into joints, bursae, tendon sheaths, and around nerves. 

This can be used as a test and a treatment, for example as a nerve root block around the greater occipital nerve or around the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh.

 

GENERAL ABDOMINAL, KIDNEY AND ABDOMINAL AORTA ULTRASOUND SCANS

For assessment of pancreas, liver, spleen, kidneys, bladder, gallbladder, gallstones, and the biliary ducts (inside and outside the liver).

-

We can also screen for aortic abdominal aneurysms.

We are not able to perform specialised obstetric or gynaecological ultrasound.

 

HEAD AND NECK ULTRASOUND SCANS

For assessment of thyroid nodules.

We can also check the salivary glands and for lumps and bumps including lymph nodes.

We do not have equipment available for fine needle aspiration (FNA) of thyroid nodules or lymph nodes; this can be done at Cirencester Hospital in the NHS clinic.

 

TESTICULAR ULTRASOUND SCANS

For assessment of the testes.

-

We also check for benign extra-testicular lumps and swellings, which are very low risk, and include: epididymal cysts, spermatoceles, varicoceles, hydroceles, haematoceles, scrotal stones (pearls), sperm granulomas, fibrous pseudotumours, lipomas, adenomatoid tumours, and hernias.

 

DEEP VENOUS THROMBOSIS (DVT) DOPPLER ULTRASOUND SCANS

For assessment of DVT in the arms and legs.

-

We can also check for lumps and bumps, collections, for a Baker's cyst behind the knee, and for thrombus in superficial veins (thrombophlebitis).
