Q: Do I need a referral letter to have an ultrasound?

A: yes, in accordance with HPCSA and the Board of medical funders, all patients are required to have a referral letter form a registered doctor, physiotherapist or any other Allied health practitioner licensed to request medical imaging.

Q: can you see fractures on ultrasound?

A: sometimes, dependent on the location. It is important to note that an X-ray is the modality of choice to evaluate bone and to accurately exclude or diagnose a fracture.

Q: I have a history of acid reflux and heartburn / IBS. Can you see my stomach or bowel on an ultrasound examination?

A: no, the physical properties of sound waves that travel through gas or air, does not form images on an ultrasound study, thus no diagnostic information can be obtained.
