  • Ultrasound is regularly being used to evaluate abdominal aortic aneurysms.
    Abdominal aneurysm is a swelling of the aorta, the main blood vessel that brings blood for your heart to the rest of the body. The aorta is around 2.5 in the abdominal area, it can, however, swell to more than 5cm.
    Aneurysms are more common in men of 65+ years of age than in women and younger men and they can be fatal as a large aneurysm can burst. According to NHS Choices 8 out of 10 people with aortic aneurysm or AAA die.
    It is highly unlikely that small aneurysms will cause any symptoms but large aneurysm can cause the following symptoms:

    • Intense back or abdominal pain
    • Rapid pulse
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Excessive sweating
    • Shock

    Although the causes of AAA are not fully understood, risk factors include obesity, high blood pressure, smoking and high cholesterol.

Preparation

No preparation is necessary for this scan but avoid eating foods that can cause a significant amount of abdominal gas

What should I expect during the ultrasound scan?

Before the scan, our sonographer will explain the examination procedure. During your scan, you will be asked to expose your abdomen by lifting your top-up. We will put some warm jelly on your skin and we will use an ultrasound probe that sends sound waves in your body to visualise the aorta.
The scan is painless and we will be able to tell you there and then if you do have an AAA. An ultrasound report will be issued to take it with you.

Price: £119.00

    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.

    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.

    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!!
