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.

Toshiba Aplio 500 Ultrasound

St Joseph’s uses Toshiba Aplio 500 Ultrasound through many different departments.

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 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. 

Aplio 500 defines a new era in ultrasound performance.  Structures can be visualised in different planes, similar to how you might view a CT scan, which aids diagnosis and localisation of potential lesions.
