EchoNorth Рyour local Ultrasound Professionals

We are a locally owned and operated close knit, friendly group of dedicated professionals. From the pleasant voice on the phone, to the welcoming smile as you walk in, we aim to make you feel comfortable and at ease during your examination.

Because ultrasound examinations are highly dependent on the skill of the operator, our sonographers and radiologists have extensive ultrasound training and a commitment to continuing medical education in this area.

We have also made it our obligation to only use top of the line equipment.

Beginning early 2018, EchoNorth’s lead sonographer Angela Browne will be part of a specialised team. This includes Mr Carl Muthu, Dr Jill Gibson and Dr Joanna Romanowska and provides a comprehensive vein treatment service covering surgical treatment, Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT), vein glue treatment, Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (UGS), Cosmetic vein treatment, management of complex vein issues and post thrombotic syndrome.

New Services Available – SIS and HyCoSy Procedures

From July 2018, EchoNorth has added two new services to our growing list of ultrasounds on offer. SIS and HyCoSy procedures are now offered at EchoNorth, which previously were only available privately in Auckland. These procedures, used for Fertility Treatment and in Women’s Health, are performed in conjunction with one of our Sonographers, and Dr Kristy Wolff, consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist.

Ultrasound Guided Steroid Injections now available at EchoNorth

EchoNorth are very happy to announce that we are now offering monthly clinics, administering ultrasound guided steroid injections to those referred to us by their health professional. Find out more about this new service here.

Affiliated Providers for Southern Cross Healthcare

For members of Southern Cross Healthcare, the examination can be even more painless. Just provide us with your membership number when booking your appointment, and we can gain prior approval for your examination.

Depending on your type of policy, you may only be required to pay a small percentage of our fee, or nothing at all.
