Ultrasound Clinic

Ashfields hosts a community non-obstetric ultrasound service (NOUS).  This service is provided by an experienced team of sonographers from Diagnostic Health Care.

Patients are referred to the service via the e-Referral System, which allows them to select an appointment of their own choosing.  Other benefits of the community-based clinic include:

  • Much shorter wait times
  • Faster reporting of the results
  • Reduced pressure on hospital clinics
  • No parking fees

There are conditions where patients will still be referred to the hospital for an ultrasound scan; these include:

  • Obstetric dating scans
  • Scans for soft tissue problems (breast, ganglions, thyroid, etc)
  • If a patient is under 18 years of age
