St. Andrews Ultrasound Services

Ultrasound Services

At St. Andrews Clinics we have the facility of a modern ultrasound machine and are thus able to offer a more comprehensive service under one roof. Medical sonography, or ultrasonography, uses harmless waves not known to pose any risks to the patients and uses power of such a low intensity as not to cause any heating or pressure effect. This technology allows visualisation of internal organs and any pathological lesions or tissue damage. As of 2016 we also invested in the latest technology of 3D & 4D ultrasound (temporarily unavailable) and cardiac echos.

Our Ultrasound team consists of Dr Andre' Gatt, a Consultant Radiologist specialising in paediatric imaging, but also offering abdominal, thyroid, breast, musculoskeletal, prostate and genitourinary as well as doppler studies. Dr Gatt is complemented by Lara Sammut, a qualified ultrasonographers who carries out antenatal and gynaecological ultrasounds. Dr Elton Pllaha, Cardiologist, carries out the cardiac echos.

Since the applications and indications of ultrasonography are various it is always wise to discuss your case with a medical practitioner beforehand to ensure you are requesting the right investigation for your case.
