Abdominal Ultrasound For Abdominal Pain

An upper abdominal ultrasound involves a detailed investigation to look at the size, character and shape of the kidneys, liver, gall bladder, spleen, biliary systems and pancreas. The ultrasound waves are created using sound waves; we will also use an ultrasound gel to help move the ultrasound across your abdomen. Other than being able to feel pressure, contact with ultrasound will only give you slight discomfort but no pain whatsoever.

If you are experiencing any abdominal pain, bloating or discomfort, you should have an upper abdomen scan to check for any underlying conditions. It could highlight an abdominal aortic aneurysm, any enlargement or damage to your upper body.

This scan is available to patients over the age of 18 years. You will be required to fast for at least 6 hours before your scan, and only clear fluids are allowed. We recommend you drink at least one litre of water before your scan, as a full bladder is necessary for this ultrasound. This will allow your sonographer to get a clearer picture when they carry out your abdominal ultrasound.

The sound waves bounce off your blood vessels and soft tissues to create the image.

What is the purpose of an upper abdomen ultrasound?

An upper abdomen ultrasound aims to investigate the upper abdominal area and assess whether any underlying conditions are causing the discomfort. This can include gall stones, polyps, pancreatitis, liver conditions, abdominal aorta and aortic aneurysms.

Depending on what you have an abdominal ultrasound to find, you will be more than capable of resuming normal activities immediately after your ultrasound.

Certain factors may mean the procedure can cause a small amount of pain and discomfort, but our team will do all we can to minimise the risk of this. Getting a clear picture of your organs is essential to us, and should we see anything of concern, you will be notified immediately whilst on the examination table.

This ultrasound scan is straightforward and will be performed but one of our registered sonographers, so you are in great hands. Once the procedure has taken place, we can discuss any treatment recommendations or pull together a report that you can pass on to your GP or hospital.

A follow-up appointment can also be made for you should we think one is required.
