Ultrasound Scan - The Jelly Belly Test
The test takes about 10 minutes. It makes pictures using sound waves and doesn’t involve any radiation.
If your child is still a baby it is a good idea to bring a full bottle and dummy or be ready to breast-feed just before the test starts. Bring a clean nappy too.
The results of this examination will be sent to your child's hospital consultant in the next 7-10 days, and s/he will contact you, either by appointment or letter.
For further information between 9.00am and 5.00pm, Monday - Friday, please contact:
- Liz Hunter, Judith Hobson or any radiographer
- Tel: 0191 282 4426
You can get more details about ultrasound scans at the NHS Choices website.
You can also download a PDF information leaflet to explain the test to your child.
