Ultrasound scanning is not only being used to check the unborn baby but is also widely being used to image the reproductive and other organs in women for diagnostic purposes.
At International Ultrasound Services we are using the very latest imaging technology to diagnose many conditions and symptoms related to female health.
As this type of scan is using high-frequency sound waves instead of radiation, ultrasound procedures are believed to be completely safe.
