Abdominal ultrasound scans are provided for patients who experience pain above the navel and in the stomach area. The scan is performed to examine organs in the abdomen, including the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, aorta, spleen, and kidneys. The procedure detects gallstones, cysts, and tumours, alongside other pathologies.
A comfortable procedure
During the procedure the Sonographer will ensure you feel relaxed. Upon your arrival, you are asked to lie on your back on our comfortable couches. The sonographer places gel onto your abdomen moves the probe back and forth. You will be asked to hold your breath for a short time and also to turn onto your side. Once the scan is complete, you may wipe the gel from your abdomen.
