Kidneys and Bladder Ultrasound

We will perform a detailed scan to look at the size, shape and condition of the:

  • bladder when full and immediately after emptying

  • both kidneys and ureters

  • prostate gland when visible

Common examples for having this ultrasound scan are:

  • to exclude the effects of urinary tract infections (UTI)

  • look for obstructions due to stones in the kidney or bladder

  • look for causes of persistent bladder problems

  • look for prostate enlargement

We will provide a Radiologist report within 24 hours.
