This scan is recommended for men and women who are interested their upper abdominal and pelvic health. Whilst completing the scan we carry out an overall wellbeing check on the kidneys, gall bladder, liver and spleen. We look at the size, shape and condition of each organ carrying out measurements and visual observations. The scan has been created to help detect obstructions in the kidneys/ gall bladder such as stones or polyps. We carefully assess the liver and it’s condition if visible and report back our findings. We also carry out a pelvic health check, and depending on your biological sex, we look at the prostate/uterus, ovaries, and uterus lining.
As we allow a full 40 minutes appointment this provides you with opportunity to ask any questions you may have and allows us to support you and provide you with the most accurate advice during the scan.
A qualified Sonographer will complete your scan. Our Sonographers are fully qualified and registered medical professionals with lots of ultrasound experience. Our Sonographers are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and follow the British Medical Ultrasound Society protocols and guidance.
