About Paradise Ultrasound

Meet the Team

Here at Paradise Ultrasound we have sonographers who have wide and varied experience.  Our senior sonographers are all specialised in their own areas of expertise.  These specialised areas include Obstetrics, Musculoskeletal, and Echocardiograms.

We encourage our sonographers to keep up to date with the latest techniques and now hold the Australian Sonographers Association branch meetings at Paradise Ultrasound.  Guest speakers come and inform sonographers from Gold Coast, Tweed and Brisbane of the latest techniques.
