Why may I need an Abdominal Ultrasound scan?

Abdominal pain or discomfort, bloating and vomiting are the most common reasons for having an Abdominal Ultrasound diagnostic examination. 

An ultrasound scan of the upper abdomen will provide information about the appearance of your liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys and spleen.

This will help to diagnose or exclude a wide range of abdominal conditions normally causing pain and discomfort in the upper abdomen such as gallstones and kidney stones.

What preparation is needed before my appointment?
  • You will be asked to fast for at least 6 hours before your abdominal ultrasound scan appointment. You are allowed to drink water but not drink Tea or Coffee or eat porridge
  • You must drink at least one litre of water one hour before your appointment.
  • If you have diabetes, please eat and drink as usual.
  • If you are on medication, please take your medicines on time.
What happens during the appointment?

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment. 

The sonographer will gather relevant information regarding your concerns. They will explain the procedure to you. 

You will be asked to lie on your back and expose your upper abdomen.

A small amount of water-based gel will be applied to your skin. The gel will help the ultrasound probe to make good contact with the skin. The ultrasound probe will be placed on the body and will be moved in different directions over the area of interest to obtain the required information/ultrasound images.

There is usually no discomfort from pressure as the probe is pressed against the area being examined. However, if scanning is performed over an area of tenderness, you may feel pressure or minor discomfort from the probe. 

Once the imaging is completed, the clear gel will be wiped off your skin. Any portions that are not wiped off will dry quickly. The gel does not usually stain or discolour clothing.

This examination is usually completed within 10-20 minutes. You should be able to resume your normal activities immediately.

When will I receive the results?

The clinician will explain the ultrasound findings at the time of your scan. Following your appointment, a complete digital report of your Ultrasound examination will be emailed to you directly with any recommended actions.

What are the risks of Private Abdominal ultrasound scan?

There are no risks or side effects associated with the private abdominal ultrasound scan. Ultrasound does not use any radiation, here are no confirmed adverse biological effects on patients or instrument operators caused by exposures to ultrasound at the intensity levels used in diagnostic ultrasound.

What are the limitations of Abdominal Ultrasound Imaging?

Ultrasound does not travel well in the bowel or gas, so abdominal organs such as the stomach and bowel or organs obscured by the bowel cannot be fully evaluated with ultrasound.

It can also be hard to fully visualise the internal anatomy of large patients as the sound waves have further to travel, and therefore the returning echoes are weaker.
