Diagnostic Ultrasound Service in Sheffield

Best known for its use during pregnancy, diagnostic ultrasound is now the preferred choice of imaging for most musculoskeletal disorders. In fact, such is the advancement in its technology, that ultrasound scanning is now considered more effective than MRI scanning for a large number of tendon, muscular and ligament injuries – most notably, those associated with the achilles tendon, patella tendon, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, as well as the rotator cuff tendons of the shoulder.

To book your appointment, please call the clinic or use the form below and we look forward to meeting and working with you soon.

Covid-19 Update

For anyone visiting the clinic, please be reassured that we have put in place the following checks and procedures to ensure the clinic remains covid-secure:

  • Appointment times have been extended to allow for full sanitisation of rooms between clients
    Masks are worn by our therapists
  • We are operating a mask friendly policy for customers. It is your choice if you wish to wear one.
  • Appointment times are staggered to reduce interaction in the reception.
  • The waiting area has been adapted to provide plenty of space.
  • We have a cash-free policy and have put in place a hygiene screen at reception.

What to expect during your appointment?

During your ultrasound, you’ll be positioned so that you’re comfortable and so the part of your body being imaged is easily accessible. Guy will then apply a water-based gel to the area. Having done this, Guy will then begin by guiding a handheld device over the skin which projects sound waves into the underlying area. The reflection of these sound waves allows the device to display what’s going on beneath the surface onto a nearby monitor.

The instantaneous feedback from the machine will allow the issue at hand to be discussed during the appointment, with a report written up and emailed, posted or made available to you at reception within just 48 hours.

Please note, we are unfortunately unable to provide a CD disc of scans taken from our machines. We also do not scan lumps and bumps, the abdominal region, the spine or hernias.

How can diagnostic ultrasound aid your recovery

Best known for its use during pregnancy, diagnostic ultrasound is now the preferred choice of imaging for most musculoskeletal disorders. In fact, such is the advancement in its technology, that ultrasound scanning is now considered more effective than MRI scanning for a large number of tendon, muscular and ligament injuries – most notably, those associated with the achilles tendon, patella tendon, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, as well as the rotator cuff tendons of the shoulder.

Diagnostic ultrasound is an excellent way for your physiotherapist to fully get to grips with the pain or discomfort you’re currently experiencing, allowing them confirm their diagnosis, the extent of the problem and to continually assess progress throughout your treatment. Adding to this, ultrasound is completely safe, timely, and cost-effective.

Who will I be treated by? What experience do they have?

You will be treated by one of our most senior physiotherapists, Guy Titman. Guy has completed specialist training in diagnostic ultrasound scanning and has scanned hundreds of patients, providing expert diagnosis and personalised plans for individuals with complicated musculoskeletal disorders.
