DO NOT EAT for 8 hours before the procedure.
PLEASE DRINK lots of clear fluids (1 litre or 2 pints) before your appointment. Avoid milk and fizzy drinks. You may have water or black coffee. Please do not empty your bladder before the procedure.
A full Consultation with your Radiologist is included in the below price.
We will give you a report of your findings, but the images will only be sent to your NHS GP or Medical Clinic (with your consent).
|Abdominal and pelvis ultrasound views can be limited if you are overweight or if you have extensive bowel gas present.|
Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your appointment time – this allows adequate time to get registered with us.
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 (but this is not the best form of scan for the 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. An ultrasound scan cannot assess for appendix, bowel or bone disorders.
|Kidneys, Ureters and Bladder Ultrasound|
Consultant Radiologist (Doctor)
|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).
