|Abdominal and pelvis ultrasound views can be limited if you are overweight or if you have extensive bowel gas present.|
This is used to assess for a cause of abdominal pain. It analyses your liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, pancreas, spleen and kidneys and bladder. It can also assess your central large blood vessels. In men it may also be able to assess your prostate gland and in women, it may be able to assess your uterus and ovaries (as long as they are not obscured by overlying bowel gas or adipose tissue- hence, to adequately assess your pelvic organs, we would recommend a transvaginal ultrasound scan.

|Kidneys, Ureters and Bladder Ultrasound|
This can assess the size, shape and position of your kidneys, ureters and bladder. It looks for Kidney masses, stones obstructing the urinary tract and renal cysts. Your bladder is assessed when it is full and immediately after emptying (to ensure adequate bladder emptying).

In 2005, I left Iraq to come to the United Kingdom. I passed my language and medical exams in 2006 and received my GMC registration. I started my honorary registrar job in St Mary’s Hospital in London and joined the radiology training program in 2008. I was granted a fellowship in MRI in 2009.

Your Senior Ultrasonographer – Ms. Georgia De’Lisle-Tarr
After obtaining my second undergraduate degree in America I returned home to Australia to pursue a post-graduate degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography from the University of South Australia in my home city of Adelaide.
I worked in a large private radiology clinic for four years in Australia before endeavouring on a new journey and moving to the UK.
While in the UK I have worked for private and NHS hospitals performing a wide variety of diagnostic ultrasound scans including obstetrics, general, gynaecology and IVF scanning.
I am a member of the Australasian Sonographers Association (ASA) and accredited with Australasian Society for Ultrasound Medicine (ASUM).
With strong family connections to the UK, moving back here and pursing my ultrasound career has been a very rewarding experience. The best part of my job as a diagnostic medical sonographer is the patient interaction and the care I can provide. I look forward to this new and challenging role at The GP surgery
