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.
Need to expose lower part of the abdomen so ideally wear 2 piece garments i.e pants and top.
Drink a minimum of 24 ounces of clear fluid at least one hour before your appointment. Do not empty your bladder prior to the procedure. Generally, no prior preparation, such as fasting is required.
Maintain normal medication.
