Ultrasound

Ultrasound also referred to as diagnostic ultrasound / sonography / diagnostic medical sonography. Ultrasound is a medical imaging method, utilised for diagnostic purposes, which uses high-frequency sound waves to produce live images of organs and structures within the body. An ultrasound offers high-resolution images of your organs which can enable your health check to provide you with a better understanding of your general health. These images enable potential diagnosis and treatment of a variety of diseases and conditions. Ultrasound imaging may be used as part of health screening for evaluation of the kidneys, liver, gallbladder, spleen, blood vessels, abdominal aorta, urinary bladder, prostate, ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, breasts and other organs depending on the type of screening requested based on one’s personal health concerns and, or history of family illness. Unlike x-ray, ultrasound does not expose one to radiation. Ultrasound imaging enables a more detailed health screening service allowing for a more extensive health check.

Ultrasound - Breast
Imaging

Ultrasound screening of the breasts, often conducted in conjunction with a mammogram screening (for breast cancer). Conducting breast ultrasound in addition to mammogram offers a more comprehensive screening of the breasts. Ultrasound imaging of the breasts enables detection of fibroadenosis (fibrocystic breast disease), a common non-cancerous breast disease, as well as cysts in the breasts. Breast ultrasound can be used to distinguish between a solid mass and a fluid-filled cyst and together with a mammogram offers a more comprehensive form of breast screening for women over 40 and a safe form of screening for women under this age. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women. According to the Hong Kong Cancer Registry of the (Hong Kong) Hospital Authority, breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer among females in Hong Kong with 25% of women diagnosed with cancer being diagnosed with this form of the diesease.

Mammogram or Ultrasound - Breast
Imaging

Screening for breast cancer. Used to detect micro-calcifications in the breast tissue with the use of x-rays. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women. According to the Hong Kong Cancer Registry of the (Hong Kong) Hospital Authority, breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer among females in Hong Kong with 25% of women diagnosed with cancer being diagnosed with this form of the diesease. It is normally advised that women over 40 years of age get a mammogram every other year. This can vary depending on specific health concerns and family history. <br /><br />Ultrasound screening of the breasts, often conducted in conjunction with a mammogram screening (for breast cancer).

Ultrasound - Upper Abdomen
Imaging

Ultrasound imaging of the upper abdomen allows for a detailed evaluation of the kidneys, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen and abdominal aorta as well as other blood vessels. An upper abdomen ultrasound may be used to detect a number of issues including cysts or abnormal growths in the liver, spleen, or pancreas; cancer of the liver or fatty liver; gallstones or sludge in the gallbladder and abnormal enlargement of the spleen.

Ultrasound - Pelvis
Imaging

A female pelvic ultrasound offers a screening of the bladder, ovaries, uterus, cervix, and fallopian (uterine) tubes. This type of screening offers diagnostic imaging covering a number of organs which can be of key health concern to females. According to the Hong Kong Cancer Registry of the (Hong Kong) Hospital Authority, uterine cancer (Corpus Uteri) is the 4th most prevalent cancer among females in HK, with ovarian and cervical cancer the 6th and 8th most common, respectively. Together these cancers account for approximately 15% of cancer found in females.

Ultrasound - Whole Abdomen
Imaging

Ultrasound imaging of the whole abdomen allows for a detailed evaluation of the kidneys, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen and abdominal aorta as well as other blood vessels. An upper abdomen ultrasound may be used to detect a number of issues including cysts or abnormal growths in the liver, spleen, or pancreas; cancer of the liver or fatty liver; gallstones or sludge in the gallbladder and abnormal enlargement of the spleen.
