Upper Abdomen Ultrasound

An upper abdomen ultrasound involves a detailed investigation to look at the size, character and shape of the kidneys, liver, gall bladder, spleen, biliary systems and pancreas.

This scan is available to patients over the age of 18 years. You will be required to fast for at least 6 hours prior to 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.
