Diagnostic Ultrasound Service
We now have a diagnostic ultrasound service running at Burnham Health Centre . This is not a walk in service, but the doctors at the Health Centre will be able to refer you. It is hoped that this will save the need to go to other diagnostic centres like those at St Marks Hospital Maidenhead or in Cressex.
The service will be able to do assessments of the Aorta, Biliary Tract, Gallbladder, Inferior Vena Cava, Kidneys, Liver, Pancreas, Retroperitoneum and Spleen. They will also be able to do Gynaecological, renal, bladder, prostate, scrotal, testicular and musculoskeletal scans.
Unfortunately they are unable to supply obstetric services, so scans for pregnancy will still need to be done by your usual provider and those who are under 18 years of age or who are private patients will also no be able to access the service.
For those referred into the service, the aim is to see you within 10 working days of the referral date.
Results are normally returned to the Health Centre the following day and once checked by a doctor will be available via the usual routes.
