Ultrasound scanning in Swansea
We have an ultrasound scanning machine. This enables us to scan hearts, abdomens and lumps. We have a variety of probes, the long straight or linear probe can be used to see images that are very near the surface of the skin in which you are scanning (for example horse tendons or a lump on the skin). The convex or short very curved probe can be used to see much further, such as into and abdomen. Ultrasound scanning can give a lot more detail on soft tissues, such as gut or liver than an Xray can.
