Kidney, Ureters & Bladder Scan

Here at Ultrasound Plus, we can offer you line ultrasound scans to check up on an existing medical condition or find a new one.

Ultrasound Scan For Kidneys, Ureters and Bladder

Our Kidney, Ureters & Bladder scan is a detailed investigation using ultrasound technology to look at the size, character and shape of the kidneys, ureter, full bladder and empty bladder. This type of ultrasound scan can raise awareness of any problems with your urinary tract, kidney stones, or abdominal pain. Using high-frequency sound waves, our bladder ultrasound can provide you with ultrasound imaging that provides a detailed scan so we can confirm any bladder problems or issues in your urinary system.

This scan is recommended if you are experiencing abdominal pain, blood in urine and pain when emptying your bladder. This private kidney, ureters and bladder scan will detect any obstructions caused by kidney stones, bladder stones or urinary tract infections. Please don’t worry as there is no radiation exposure meaning the process is safe for everyone; we may ask you to lie on the examination couch beforehand to feel for any enlargement. Please let us know of any known health conditions before we start.

Bladder Ultrasound Scans

Our urinary tract ultrasound services are available to patients above 18 because the scan is slightly different below that age. When you are coming to your appointment time, please make sure you drink at least one litre of water before you come; this is because we will carry out the scan when you have a full bladder and an empty one. Please continue to take any normal medication as required before this scan.

This ultrasound scan will be done on an outpatient basis; once we have your test results, should there be anything of concern within your urinary tract, such as kidney stones, we may suggest a further test such as a visit to an x-ray machine at your local hospital. If any abnormalities are found during the scan, we recommend reporting your findings to your GP/Healthcare provider. We may suggest you speak to your doctor to share our findings and go for further treatment, pending what they suggest as well.

What is the purpose of a kidney, ureters & bladder scan?

The purpose of a kidney, ureters & bladder scan is to detect any underlying conditions that could cause any discomfort. This private kidney scan investigates the kidney and the surrounding areas, such as the ureters and bladder. It will detect any cysts, obstructions, tumours, abscesses or infection about the kidneys.

Sometimes, a bladder x-ray will also be required simultaneously; we can offer you a GP referral if this is the case. When you come to your scan today, please bring any information you have already discussed with your GP.

What Should You Expect During The Ultrasound Scan?

When you arrive at Ultrasound Plus, your sonographer will come and greet you; we can discuss the procedure with you at length if you need some reassurance; from there, we will discuss your symptoms so we can gain some information as to where we need to look. You will then be asked to lie down on the examination couch with your abdomen exposed; we will be as discreet as possible.

Next, our sonographer will put some cold jelly on your abdomen to move the ultrasound probe across your body; this might be cold. From there, we can obtain images of your kidneys, bladder and all of your urinary tract. Once the ultrasound is over, we will give you some tissue to clean off the jelly and discuss any findings with you to report back to your health care provider or GP.
