Ultrasound Skip To Content


Ultrasound is a test that utilises sound waves to produce diagnostic images. It is extremely safe and is often the first-line investigation. It is widely used in obstetrics, cardiology, assessing blood vessels, abdominal structures such as liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, bladder, prostate, testicles, uterus, and ovaries. It is also used for the examination of glands in the neck and some knee conditions.

St Joseph’s Hospital uses Toshiba Aplio 700 Ultrasound. The Aplio system delivers unsurpassed image quality to exceptional depth and detail, giving the operator great confidence in diagnosing disease. 

The range of clinical uses are endless. At St Joseph's Hospital we can image blood vessels (arteries and veins), structures like the liver and gallbaldder including in-depth analysis of sports injuries. Ultrasound can guide interventional injections into bony joints to provide therapy to patients.
