Thanks! Share it with your friends!


What’s it like for a child to have an ultrasound scan?

Ollie the robot, Ben the patient and Kate the doctor explain what happens when children go into hospital for an ultrasound scan.

This film was recorded at Oxford University Hospitals but it’s relevant to any child about to have an Ultrasound scan.

It is one of a series of information films produced by the Oxford Academic Health Science Network. They take patients through different diagnostic procedures and show them what their experience will look and feel like. Each video is narrated by a patient who has been through the process. You can see them all here:
