Abdominal ultrasound views can be limited if your child is overweight or if extensive bowel gas is present.
Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your appointment time – this allows adequate time to get registered with us.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR ABDOMINAL SCANS-
DO NOT LET YOUR CHILD EAT for 8 hours before the procedure.
PLEASE MAKE THEM DRINK lots of clear fluids (1 litre or 2 pints) before the appointment. Avoid milk and fizzy drinks. They may have water. Please do not allow them to empty their bladder before the procedure.
This is used to assess for a cause of abdominal pain. It analyses the liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, pancreas, spleen and kidneys and bladder. It can also assess the central large blood vessels. In girls, it may be able to assess the uterus and ovaries (as long as they are not obscured by overlying bowel gas or adipose tissue. An ultrasound scan cannot assess the appendix, bowel or bone disorders.
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).
This can determine if a lump in their neck is arising from the thyroid or a neighbouring structure such as your salivary gland or lymph nodes. It can also assess any thyroid nodules to determine if they are benign or have more sinister features. If so, your Ultrasonographer will suggest a referral for a thyroid nodule biopsy at a local hospital. If found to have any thyroid nodules, an ultrasound can also be used to check for any change in size of these nodules over time. This Neck ultrasound can also assess for parotid and submandibular gland swellings and assess any lymph node enlargements which may look suspicious.
This is an ultrasound of various joints (such as the shoulder) and other soft tissues in the body to find abnormalities, such as soft tissue swellings and abnormalities of tendons, muscles and ligaments.
