The elbow joint is a complex joint composed of three communicating joints that share a common synovial membrane.
Ultrasound scans are frequently requested for the examination of patients with elbow pain, which is generally caused by overuse syndromes, trauma, inflammatory diseases, or neuropathies. Any activity that involves excessive flexion-extension movements of the elbow can result in undue stress on the ligaments, tendons, and muscles that stabilize the joint. Nerve entrapment as in Radial Tunnel Syndrome can also occur. These types of injuries happen gradually over time and can aggravate existing conditions such as Tendonitis. Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow are examples of common overuse injuries.
What is the purpose of this ultrasound scan?
The purpose of this ultrasound scan is to examine your elbow for the diagnosis of Tennis or Golfer’s elbow from repetitive strain movements and other pathologies.
Reasons for having an elbow scan include:
- Reduced Movement
- Tennis Elbow
- Students Elbow
- Tumours & Cancers
- Nerve entrapment
What is included with this ultrasound scan?
- Ultrasound report and if needed, a follow-up recommendation.
Preparation for the elbow scan
No preparation is necessary for this ultrasound scan.
What should I expect during the ultrasound scan?
Before the scan, our sonographer will explain the examination procedure. The elbow joint is examined while the client is seated with his/her arm resting on the examination table. The technique used depends to some extent on the location of the pain and other clinical findings. The position of the patient’s arm will obviously vary depending on the aspect being examined. The joint is studied in both the flexed and extended positions.
Price: £149.00 (Both Elbows: £199.00)

Incredibly quick and easy online booking process. I was researching in the early hours of the morning concerned about some blood results, and I was able to book an ultrasound for the same day at a very reasonable price. Tareq was wonderful and once I told him I had a medical background he explained the more detailed scan results to me clearly and reassuringly. Very happy with the service and would highly recommend. Thanks so much.

Highly recommend this clinic! They have a wide range of availability to accommodate the work day, and they were flexible with changes. Yianni was very professional, trusting, and friendly. He made us feel comfortable informed, and made our first “early scan” a really positive experience!!

Attended today for an ultrasound on my shoulder as I have frozen shoulder. Tareq and his assistant Gina were highly professional and Tareq was informative about the procedure and findings during the scan. He was also helpful in making suggestions about further treatment. Would definitely recommend. His report was emailed to me within an hour if the scan.
