Very low sperm counts or sperm retrieved directly from the testes (MESE and TESE samples) can also be stored for future treatment at the Unit.
We can also provide sperm freezing as a temporary backup in cases where the man finds it difficult to produce a sperm sample or has to be away at the time of treatment
Ultrasound is one of the range of diagnostic imaging services offered by Finney Hospital and Fertility Centre. An Ultrasound scanner does not use X-Rays (ionising radiation). The ultrasound probe emits high frequency sound waves that are passed through your body. As they are reflected back by the structures inside, the echoes are used to form an image. Doppler ultrasound is an additional technique that can be used to examine blood vessels to provide both structural and functional information.
Ultrasound is a relatively patient friendly way of imaging and no harmful effects have been found.
