Abdominal Ultrasound

Purpose

Abdominal ultrasound is used to examine all organs from the diaphragm to the pelvic bone that includes the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas and spleen as well as the kidneys and abdominal arteries.  The condition of the intestinal wall can be determined and in the pelvic area, the bladder, uterus, ovaries and the prostate also examined.

Disorders may be diagnosed from the structural changes and the circulation of blood observed in the organs.

Advance Preparation

The examination requires an empty stomach and a full bladder. You should not eat anything 6 hours prior to the examination and do not void before your examination.

The Porcedure

You will need to take off your clothes from the waist up then lie down on your back on the examining table.  In order to better see the organs, you will be asked to first turn onto one side then onto the other and take a deep breath and hold it a few times.

Contraindications

No contraindications.  However, should you arrive with a full stomach or an empty bladder, we will not be able to perform the examination or, if we do, the results obtained may be of limited value.

You will receive a written report of the results.

The high level of interest in coronavirus testing has proportionally increased the workload of our telephone customer service. In order to improve our service, we provide a dedicated telephone line for corona virus test appointments: +36 1 999-1727
