Abdominal Ultrasound Scan

Upper Abdomen Ultrasound Scan
Price: £175

Scan Time: Up to 20 min

An abdominal ultrasound is a procedure that examines the organs within the abdomen, including the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, abdominal aorta, and kidneys. It can also be used to assess blood flow in the abdominal aorta, portal vein, hepatic vein and artery. This imaging technique is essential for diagnosing conditions such as:

  • Gallstones
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney stones
  • Pancreatitis
  • Abdominal aortic
  • aneurysm
  • Tumours and cysts in all organs

The procedure is typically painless and can be completed within 20 minutes, making it a convenient and effective diagnostic option.

Common Reasons for an Abdomen Ultrasound:

Abdominal Pain: Persistent or severe pain in the abdomen can be caused by issues such as gallstones, liver disease, or kidney stones. An ultrasound can help pinpoint the exact cause of the pain, allowing for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Abnormal Liver Function Tests: If your liver function tests show abnormal results, an ultrasound can help determine the underlying cause. Conditions like fatty liver disease, hepatitis, or liver tumors can be identified through this imaging technique.

Jaundice: Yellowing of the skin and eyes, often related to liver or gallbladder problems, can be investigated with an abdomen ultrasound. It helps in identifying obstructions or diseases affecting the bile ducts.

Kidney Stones: To detect the presence and size of stones in the kidneys or bladder, an abdomen ultrasound is a non-invasive method that can provide clear images and aid in treatment planning.

Pancreatitis: Inflammation of the pancreas, which can cause severe abdominal pain and digestive issues, can be accurately diagnosed using an ultrasound scan.

Ascites: Accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity, often related to liver disease or heart failure, can be assessed through an abdomen ultrasound to understand the extent and cause of the condition.

At London Private Ultrasound, our expert radiologists use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure precise imaging and accurate diagnosis. The procedure is quick and typically completed within 30 minutes, allowing you to get timely answers and appropriate medical care.

Importance of Abdominal Ultrasound Reports

The ultrasound report is a critical component of the diagnostic process. It provides detailed information about the findings from the scan and helps guide further medical treatment and decisions. A comprehensive abdominal ultrasound report includes:

  • Detailed descriptions of the organs examined
  • Measurements of organ size and structure
  • Identification of abnormalities such as masses, cysts, or stones
  • Assessment of blood flow in major vessels
  • Recommendations for further tests or treatments if needed

Why Are These Reports Important?

Accurate and thorough ultrasound reports ensure that your healthcare provider has all the necessary information to make informed decisions about your health. They can help:

  • Confirm or rule out diagnoses
  • Monitor the progression of certain conditions
  • Plan surgeries or other treatments
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of previous treatments

At London Private Ultrasound, we pride ourselves on delivering detailed and precise reports to support your healthcare journey.
