Sound-based medical imaging technique.

Abdomen & Pelvis

Abdomen and pelvis ultrasound is a medical imaging procedure that uses sound waves to create images of the organs and structures in the abdominal and pelvic regions of the body. It is a non-invasive and safe diagnostic tool that provides valuable information for assessing various conditions.

  1. Evaluation of Abdominal Organs: Ultrasound can provide detailed images of organs such as the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, spleen, and abdominal aorta. It helps in assessing their size, shape, and any abnormalities, such as tumors, cysts, or stones.
  2. Assessment of Pelvic Organs: Pelvic ultrasound is commonly used to evaluate the reproductive organs in females, including the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. It can help identify conditions such as fibroids, ovarian cysts, or abnormalities in the uterus. In males, it can assess the prostate gland and surrounding structures.
  3. Diagnosis of Abdominal and Pelvic Pain: Ultrasound is often used to investigate the cause of abdominal or pelvic pain. It can help identify conditions like appendicitis, gallstones, kidney stones, or pelvic inflammatory disease.
  4. Monitoring Pregnancy: Ultrasound plays a crucial role in monitoring the development and well-being of the fetus during pregnancy. It can provide information about the gestational age, growth, position of the fetus, and detect any abnormalities or complications.
  1. Fasting: In some cases, you may be required to fast for a certain period before the ultrasound. Fasting helps to obtain clearer images of the organs, particularly the gallbladder and pancreas. Your healthcare provider will inform you about the fasting requirements, such as avoiding food or drink for a specific duration before the test.
  2. Clothing: You will be asked to wear loose-fitting and comfortable clothing, as you may need to remove certain garments and wear a hospital gown for the procedure. It is advisable to wear separates, like a two-piece outfit, to facilitate easy access to the abdomen and pelvic area.
  3. Instructions: Follow any specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider. This may include drinking a specified amount of water and not emptying your bladder before the procedure. A full bladder can help visualize certain structures more clearly during the ultrasound.
  4. Informing the Sonographer: Inform the sonographer about any relevant medical history, ongoing medications, or previous surgeries. This information can help them interpret the ultrasound images accurately.

It’s important to note that the specific preparation instructions may vary, so it’s best to follow the guidance provided by your healthcare provider or the imaging facility where the ultrasound will be performed.
