General health scans can provide you with the reassurance you need, without the lengthy waiting times that can come with NHS queues


At Imaginatal we know that your health comes first. When your GP recommends that you have an ultrasound scan, we can do this for you as quickly as possible. We offer a wide range of ultrasound services to help diagnose conditions such as gallbladder disease, kidney conditions, bladder conditions, prostate cancer, general abdominal problems, and liver disease.

Abdomen Ultrasound: With an abdominal ultrasound, we can detect several issues including fatty liver disease, spleen conditions, bladder stones, pancreatitis and cancer of the upper abdominal organs.​

Kidney Ultrasound: Performing a kidney (renal) ultrasound is used to detect infection, tumours, cysts, abscesses, fluid collection, and obstructions by examining the size, shape and location of your left and right kidney.

Prostate Ultrasound: Ultrasound imaging of the prostate is a safe and painless diagnostic procedure used to identify the causes of pain and discomfort in the male pelvis, as well as to evaluate infertility and urinary frequency problems.

Aorta Ultrasound: We can detect abdominal aortic aneurysms. This is a condition that is common in men over the age of 60 where the main blood vessel in the body becomes enlarged.


Our scans are available whether you are feeling unwell, or want specific screening for conditions such as gallbladder disease, liver disease, kidney conditions, bladder conditions, prostate cancer, general abdominal problems, and liver disease. You can take full advantage of our test and diagnostics service with just a simple call and booking, without any need for a referral.

If you know which scans you need, we can organise your appointment or you may wish to consult with our clinical team to decide on the most appropriate scan – given your symptoms.

  • How early can I have a pregnancy scan?
    The earliest scan you can have an early pregnancy scan is from 6 weeks. Earlier than that and we might not be able to detect the baby’s heartbeat.
  • How accurate are early pregnancy scans?
    The early assurance scans are highly accurate when performed at the appropriate stage of the pregnancy (from 6 weeks onwards). The accuracy also relies on the scan being performed by competent and qualified sonographers. Early pregnancy scans are especially accurate when performed trans-vaginally because the scan images obtained in this manner can show a significant amount of miniature developmental details of the early pregnancy stages.
  • Are early pregnancy scans safe?
    Early pregnancy scans are performed by ultrasound, just like any other pregnancy scan. The only difference with early scans is that they are often transvaginal as opposed to abdominal – the procedure is completely safe for mother and baby.
  • When will I get the results for my reassurance scan?
    You will get the results of your ultrasound the same day as your appointment. You will also receive a typed report on email to keep for your records.
  • Can early ultrasound scan detect if I have twins?
    Yes, during in your early scan, you will be able to find out how many babies you will be expecting.
  • If the early pregnancy scan shows my baby is more likely to have a condition, what happens next?
    We have clear referral procedures to the NHS Trust Hospitals. To pursue the referral pathway, we contact the EPM Department at your trust hospital on your behalf, initially. Then we give you their contact number and our official referral form to present to them.
  • Can I find out the gender of my baby during early pregnancy scan?
    No, you will not be able to find out the gender of your baby during an early scan. You will be able to find out the gender of your baby from 15 weeks and 4 days.
  • When do you recommend having an early scan to learn as much as possible about my baby?
    We recommend that an early scan should only be performed 6 weeks after the first day of your menstrual cycle. Ultrasound is not able to demonstrate conclusive results of a viable pregnancy prior to this time. Attending an early assurance scan too soon can result in causing unwarranted worry since the results on the day would be inconclusive and require a second visit to the clinic for a reassessment. It’s important to just ensure you book the scan at the correct time frame to get the most reassurance and information about the pregnancy.
  • Can an early scan detect my baby’s heartbeat?
    Yes, from 6 weeks' gestation we will be able to detect your baby’s heartbeat via a transvaginal ultrasound. This is completely safe for your baby when performed with the correct equipment and by a competent sonographer.
  • If I can’t see my baby during early scan, what happens next?
    If you can’t see your baby during your early scan, we will organise a rebooking of your scan completely free of charge.
