Frequently Asked Questions:

There could be various reasons why someone might require an abdominal, urinary tract, and testicular private ultrasound scan. These scans are primarily used to assess different parts of the body for any abnormalities or conditions that might require treatment. Abdominal scans can help diagnose conditions related to the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, and spleen. A urinary tract scan can detect problems with the bladder, ureters, or kidneys such as kidney or bladder stones, urinary tract infections or tumors. Testicular scans are done to examine the testicles for any abnormalities and to look for signs of conditions like testicular torsion, tumors, cysts, or inflammation. Overall, these scans can provide a non-invasive and accurate way to diagnose conditions and help to determine appropriate treatment options.

  1. Abdominal Discomfort or Pain: To identify causes such as gallstones, liver disease, kidney stones, or other abdominal abnormalities.
  2. Urinary Issues: Such as frequent urination, painful urination, or blood in the urine which could be indicative of bladder or kidney issues.

If you have symptoms or concerns in any of these areas, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare provider to determine if an ultrasound is appropriate for you.

The abdominal, urinary tract, and testes/scrotum ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the internal organs. Here’s a general overview of the procedure:

  • Preparation: Depending on the specific ultrasound, you may be asked to fast for several hours before the procedure or to arrive with a full bladder. You’ll be given specific instructions based on the area being examined.
  • Positioning: Once in the examination room, you will be asked to lie down on an ultrasound table, usually on your back.
  • Exposing the Area: You’ll need to expose the area being examined. For abdominal and urinary tract scans, this typically means lifting or removing clothing and using a sheet or towel for modesty. For a testes/scrotum ultrasound, you’ll need to expose the scrotal area.
  • Applying Ultrasound Gel: A clear gel is applied to the skin. This gel ensures a smooth movement for the transducer (the handheld device that sends and receives the sound waves) and eliminates air pockets between the skin and the transducer for clearer images.
  • Scanning: The sonographer will press the transducer against your skin and move it around to capture images from different angles. You might feel slight pressure, but it should not be painful.
  • Instructions: During the scan, you might be asked to change positions, hold your breath briefly, or perform other actions to get clear images of certain organs.
  • Post-Scan: Once the necessary images are taken, the ultrasound gel will be wiped off, and you can dress.
  • Discussion: Some sonographers might discuss preliminary findings with you, but in most cases, a radiologist or your doctor will review the images and provide a detailed report later.
  • Report: You’ll typically receive a formal report on the findings within 24 hours, which will be discussed with you by your healthcare provider.
  • Follow-up: Depending on the findings, further tests or treatment recommendations may be given.

Remember, ultrasounds are a safe and commonly used imaging technique, providing valuable insights without the use of radiation.

  • Do NOT eat for 6 hours prior to examination time.
  • Do NOT Drink any fizzy drinks.
    Drink One liter of still water (2 Pints) One hour before your scan.
  • Medication can be taken as normal.
  • If Diabetic, please stick to your normal routine.
