The Ultrasound Team
The Deepings Practice has successfully provided community based Ultrasound Scanning for over 20 years. The current team is led by a Specialist Ultrasound Radiologist with many years experience within this modality. The team also comprises an Ultrasound Service Lead and Consultant Sonographer specialising in musculoskeletal and head & neck ultrasound.
The remainder of the team is made up of advanced ultrasound practitioners who are qualified to perform ultrasound. In addition many have further areas of expertise within ultrasound such as paediatric scanning, ultrasound contrast, musculoskeletal and head & neck.
The team is committed to providing a high quality patient focused service within a local centre with the added benefit of the availability of a large multidisciplinary team for advice if required.
