Scan of lump or mass – assessment of superficial soft tissues
*Please note that we unfortunately do not provide ultrasounds of the breast or chest area in any of our clinics.
We kindly ask that all bookings and payments are to be done online below by selecting your preferred location. You need to have a referral letter from a doctor with an Irish Medical Council (IMC) or Medical Council Registration (MCRN) number before making a booking. Please send your referral in to us prior to making your appointment. You can email us a scanned copy or clear photograph of the referral to email@example.com. Once the email has been sent you can proceed to make your online booking.
Alternatively, if your doctor has already sent us a copy of your referral via Healthlink or Email, we will make contact with you to arrange an appointment.
