Ultrasound Scans for Women's and Men's Health
As part of The Fertility Partnership, we have collaborated with Simply Fertility to build an ultrasound clinic in Colchester that is suited to both pregnant clients and those who are looking to seek advice on fertility matters. All of our women's and men's private health scans in Colchester can be booked on a self-referral basis. There is no need for medical insurance or a referral from your doctor. If after your scan our staff deem it necessary, and you give permission, they can refer you to your doctor or health care provider.
We provide a full range of ultrasound scans for women's and men's health including
Women's Private Ultrasound Scans
- Fertility scans and blood tests if required
- Post menopausal pelvic scans
- Upper abdominal scans
- Kidneys, ureters & bladder scans
- Soft tissue lumps & bumps
Men's Private Ultrasound Scans
- Abdominal scans
- Kidneys, ureters & prostate scans
- Soft tissue lumps & bumps
- Testes & scrotum
Ultrasound Direct Colchester is one of the only clinics in the UK to offer a comprehensive selection of musculoskeletal (MSK) scans for men and women. Below are some of our advanced health screening services available for men and women:
- Musculoskeletal scans (MSK) including shoulders; wrists & hands; hips; knees; ankles & feet
- Vascular screening for stroke risk evaluation to include carotid scans (assessment of the blood flow in the arteries of the neck) and abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA - a potential swelling of the main abdominal artery)
- Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) assessment, including onsite cholesterol analysis
At Ultrasound Direct Colchester we specialise in baby scans, ultrasound screening, and Non-Invasive Prenatal Tests (NIPT).
Our appointments are often much longer than those of other providers. For instance, we insist upon 15 minute appointments as standard for all of our early pregnancy scans. Though you won't usually need this when everything is going well, it allows time for our healthcare professionals to act on their duty of care with sensitivity should your scan outcome be unexpected.
Our skilled healthcare professionals are backed up by a recognised clinical pathway for any further referral you may need.
Results On The Day
All appointments will benefit from a concise report provided on the day and if required. In some circumstances, a follow up scan will be necessary to complete or compliment your initial report, which we will provide at no extra charge.
