Conditions Diagnosed with Upper Abdomen Health Package: Comprehensive Evaluation for Optimal Well-being

At London Private Ultrasound in Central London, our Upper Abdomen Health Package offers a thorough assessment of your major abdominal organs and overall health. This package includes a range of diagnostic tests and consultations to provide comprehensive insights into your abdominal health. Let’s explore the conditions that can be diagnosed with each component of the package:

1. Abdomen Ultrasound:

  • Liver Conditions: This imaging modality can detect liver abnormalities such as fatty liver disease, liver cysts, liver tumors, and liver cirrhosis.
  • Kidney Disorders: Abdominal ultrasound helps identify kidney stones, kidney cysts, renal tumors, hydronephrosis, and other kidney abnormalities.
  • Pancreatic Abnormalities: It can detect pancreatic cysts, pancreatitis, pancreatic tumors, and other pancreatic disorders.
  • Spleen Conditions: Abdominal ultrasound can reveal splenic enlargement, splenic cysts, and other splenic abnormalities.

2. GP Consultation (30 min):

  • Our experienced General Practitioner will review your medical history, symptoms, and concerns related to abdominal health.
  • They can provide personalized recommendations, lifestyle advice, and guidance on managing any existing conditions or risk factors.

3. Blood Test Panel:

  • Liver Function: Liver function tests assess liver enzyme levels (AST, ALT, Alk Phos, Gamma GT), bilirubin levels, and total protein levels, helping diagnose liver diseases such as hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, and liver tumors.
  • Kidney Function: Kidney function tests evaluate electrolyte levels (sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate), urea, creatinine, and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), aiding in the diagnosis of kidney diseases such as chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury.
  • Cardiac/Muscle Enzymes: Cardiac enzymes (LDH, CK) help assess heart muscle damage, while muscle enzymes (CK) aid in diagnosing muscle disorders.
  • Inflammatory Markers: Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and inflammatory markers help identify inflammation and infection in the body.
  • Bone Markers: Blood tests can include markers such as calcium, phosphate, and alkaline phosphatase, which provide insights into bone health and metabolic bone disorders.
  • Thyroid and Cholesterol: Thyroid function tests evaluate thyroid hormone levels, while cholesterol tests assess lipid levels and cardiovascular risk.
