Frequently Asked Questions:

An abdominal and urinary tract ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves to visualize the organs and structures in the abdomen, such as the liver, pancreas, kidneys, and bladder. This test may be necessary for several reasons, including:

– To evaluate abdominal pain or discomfort
– To check for abnormalities in the kidneys, bladder, or other urinary tract structures
– To screen for or monitor conditions such as gallstones, liver disease, or pancreatic cancer
– To guide procedures such as biopsies or fluid drainages
– To monitor the progression or treatment of certain conditions.

An abdominal and urinary tract ultrasound is generally considered safe and painless, and does not involve exposure to radiation. Your doctor may recommend this test based on your symptoms, medical history, or other diagnostic test results.

An abdominal and urinary tract ultrasound scan will include the examination of several organs, including the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, bladder, and prostate (in males). During the procedure, a transducer is used to generate high-frequency sound waves that bounce off the organs and create images that can be analyzed by a medical professional. The scan is generally non-invasive, painless, and does not require any special preparation on the part of the patient, making it a safe and effective diagnostic tool.

Abdominal and urinary tract ultrasounds are medical imaging procedures used to examine the organs in the abdominal and urinary areas. There are several reasons why a doctor may recommend an abdominal and urinary tract ultrasound, including:

1. Diagnosis – ultrasound can help diagnose a variety of conditions, such as kidney stones, bladder tumors, liver or gallbladder disease, appendicitis, and more.

2. Monitoring – a doctor may use an ultrasound to monitor a known condition such as ovarian cysts or kidney disease.

3. Follow-up – after a surgery or treatment, an ultrasound can ensure that everything is healing properly.

4. Screening – an ultrasound can check for abnormalities before symptoms appear, such as in women who are at high risk of ovarian or uterine cancer.

Overall, an abdominal and urinary tract ultrasound is a non-invasive, safe, and effective way to diagnose and monitor a range of medical conditions in the abdominal area.

Abdominal issues can be caused by a wide range of factors, including digestive disorders like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Other possible causes include infections, such as gastritis or appendicitis, as well as kidney stones and hernias. Urinary tract issues, on the other hand, are most often caused by bacterial infections that affect the bladder or kidneys. Factors that increase the risk of developing a urinary tract infection include a weakened immune system, poor genital hygiene, and certain medical conditions, such as diabetes and urinary tract abnormalities. Other possible causes of urinary tract issues include bladder or urinary tract tumors, bladder stones, and nerve damage that affects bladder function. In order to determine the exact cause of these symptoms, it is important to consult a healthcare professional.

Abdominal issues can have a variety of symptoms depending on the specific condition, but common symptoms include abdominal pain, bloating, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea or constipation, and changes in bowel habits. More serious symptoms to watch for include severe or persistent abdominal pain, blood in the stool, unexplained weight loss, and difficulty swallowing.

Urinary tract issues can also have a range of symptoms. Common symptoms include pain or a burning sensation when urinating, urgency or frequency of urination, and cloudy or foul-smelling urine. More serious symptoms can include blood in the urine, fever or chills, nausea or vomiting, and pain in the back or side. It is important to seek medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms or have concerns about your abdominal or urinary health.

Abdominal and urinary problems can be caused by a variety of factors such as infections, diseases, and injuries. If you experience any of the following symptoms, it is important to see a doctor, as they may indicate a serious condition that requires medical attention.

For abdominal problems, visit a doctor if you experience severe, persistent, or worsening pain; frequent vomiting; black or tar-like stools; or unexplained weight loss. Symptoms such as bloating, constipation, and gas can usually be resolved with simple lifestyle changes or over-the-counter medications.

For urinary problems, visit your doctor if you experience pain or burning during urination; frequent urination; difficulty urinating; blood in the urine; or fever. These symptoms may indicate an infection or other underlying condition that requires medical treatment. It is also important to seek medical attention if you experience sudden incontinence or the inability to urinate at all.

During the ultrasound:

you will lie comfortably on the ultrasound table while wearing clothes covered to avoid staining by the ultrasound gel. 

The sonographer will apply the gel to the targeted area and use a handheld probe known as a transducer to emit sound waves and create internal images. 

You may be asked to take deep breaths, shift positions, or hold your breath occasionally. If the focus is on your bladder, images might be taken with a full bladder, followed by images taken after emptying it. 

Once the scan is completed, tissues will be given to clean off the gel, and you can redress. 

With subdued lighting, you will receive the scan results, notable observations, and suggestions to ensure your well-being. The process will leave you feeling confident throughout the procedure.

No, ultrasounds are non-invasive and typically painless.

The procedure usually lasts between 20 to 40  minutes, depending on the area being examined.

You will get the results verbally  immediately  after the scan, followed by a digital copy of the report with relevant images within 24 hrs.

  • Drink One liter of still water (2 Pints) One hour before your scan.
  • Do NOT use the toilet so you would arrive with a full bladder.
  • Medication can be taken as normal.

After this ultrasound, continue your normal routine unless your doctor advises otherwise. Ultrasound for diagnostic testing is safe and has no negative effects on patients or operators. Your doctor may provide you with additional information based on your test results.
