 What is the Cost of private ultrasound in Harley Street, London?

 

Many people want to know what a private ultrasound cost is in Harley Street, London, but unfortunately, there is no quick answer. Well, there is, but the answer is "it depends…….!"

The private scan prices reported online by Private Health in London and mainly in Harley street where we are located ranging from £180 to £400 with an average price of £327 for the private abdominal scan in Harley Street.

Some websites from ultrasound clinics that offer private scans in London advertise prices starting from £30. It does make you, however, wonder what you get for your money. You don't get much these days for £30 in London, do you?

In one of the private scan clinics in Harley Street, you get a 10mins scan ... I would question the diagnostic accuracy of these ultrasound scans. Would you trust them with your and your loved ones lives? Trying to save money by using a substandard service can cause unnecessary heartache as you can see for this article about a London ultrasound clinic that a mother was given false devastating news about miscarrying.

Ultrasound Scan: Colour Doppler, Duplex, and Triplex Doppler. What do they mean?

colour-dopple-duplex-ultrasound-scan
 

You are having an ultrasound scan or your doctor recommended a colour Doppler, duplex or triplex scan. It is normal to get confused as these are not terms that you use every day. On this post, we will try to demystify some of the terms related to ultrasound scanning.

Ultrasound was discovered in 1880 by Jacques and Pierre Curie and its first application was to detect submarines in 1917. In 1956, a team led by Obstetrician Ian Donald and engineer Tom Brown develop the first ultrasound machine to be used in clinical practice. As you can imagine the first applications of ultrasound were primarily in baby scanning. By the end of the 20th century, ultrasound scans were extensively used in maternity clinics.

Initially, the ultrasound images used to be black and white – and still are. These images are called 2D images as being two-dimensional.

 

Doppler Ultrasound

Colour Doppler or colour flow Doppler, that was discovered by Christian Doppler in 1841, is the technology to visualize blood flow during an ultrasound scan. Colour flow is being used all the time these days as it helps to differentiate between different structures, for example, a blood vessel and a cyst that can have the similar appearance on ultrasound. It helps to evaluate the vascularity of a tumour found for example in the breast scan, pelvic scan or liver scan. It helps to evaluate vascularity of whole organs such as in the thyroid scan in cases of thyroiditis.
