Ultrasound Abdomen - Female

5000+ scans done & counting

An abdominal ultrasound is a non-invasive and painless imaging technique used to visualize and assess the structures and organs within the abdomen. In females, an abdominal ultrasound can help diagnose and monitor conditions related to the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, bladder, and the female reproductive organs such as the uterus and ovaries.

The ultrasound procedure uses high-frequency sound waves to produce real-time images of the body's internal structures. Unlike X-rays and CT scans, ultrasounds do not use radiation, making it a safe diagnostic method for all patients, including pregnant women.

Ultrasounds can detect a wide range of conditions and abnormalities, including gallstones, kidney stones, liver diseases, tumors, cysts, and issues related to the female reproductive system such as ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, and conditions like endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease.


Specific Instructions:
  • Clothing: Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to your ultrasound appointment. Depending on the protocol of the imaging facility, you might need to change into a hospital gown.

  • Eating and Drinking: Typically, you will be asked to fast for several hours before an abdominal ultrasound to reduce the amount of gas in the intestines, which can interfere with the images. However, water intake is usually allowed and may be encouraged if the bladder needs to be full for the examination of pelvic organs.

  • Allergies and Health Conditions: Inform your healthcare professional about any allergies or health conditions. Although ultrasound is safe and carries no known risks or side effects, certain factors like obesity or excessive intestinal gas may affect the quality of ultrasound images.

  • Pregnancy: Inform your healthcare professional if you are or might be pregnant, even though ultrasound is safe to use during pregnancy.
