Carotid Duplex Ultrasound 

This scan is done to assess the blood flow through the Carotid arteries in the neck which supply the brain. The Vertebral arteries are also examined. Reasons to have this scan are to look for plaques that narrow or block the vessels causing blood flow disturbances. Symptoms may include dizziness, momentary blindness in one eye, headache or TIA (mini stroke).

Our scans are reviewed by Professor Michael Lee, Consultant Radiologist Beaumont Hospital.

These scans cost €150.

 

Pregnancy Scans

For your pregnant patients, we also offer a full range of pregnancy scans. 

  • If you are concerned of a possible ectopic, we will perform a TV scan which will establish the location of the pregnancy. 

  • It is important to establish correct gestational age before 12 weeks so that accurate growth profiling may be carried out during each trimester of the pregnancy. The crown-rump length is the most accurate determination of gestational age and this measurement is carried out during our Dating scan. The FHR is also measured at this scan. 

  • From 20 - 24 weeks pregnant, we perform the detailed anomaly scan. This is the gold standard second trimester evaluation of gross fetal anatomy and growth profile. Major growth issues such as IUGR are picked up at this scan. Serious conditions such as placenta previa are also determined at this stage. You will receive a detailed medical report. It is our policy to speak to you directly by telephone in the case of findings that require urgent attention.  

  • The 3rd Trimester ultrasound scan is a chance to further review the gross fetal anatomy, establish an estimated fetal weight and assess the fetal environment & fetal activity (Biophysical Profile)

  • If there is any question of the baby's position ie. possible breech, we will scan the patient and determine the baby's lie.
