Ultrasound Abdomen - Male

5000+ scans done & counting

An abdominal ultrasound is a type of diagnostic imaging test that is used to examine the organs within the abdomen. In men, the abdominal ultrasound is used to visualize and examine the organs like the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, bladder, and prostate gland. This examination can help diagnose a wide range of conditions and diseases in men, including gallstones, kidney stones, liver disease, hernias, tumors, prostate conditions, and much more.

An abdominal ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the structures within the abdomen. The test is non-invasive, safe, and typically painless. Because it doesn't involve the use of radiation, it is a preferred imaging technique for many patients and conditions.

Specific Instructions:
  • Clothing: Wear loose, comfortable clothing to your ultrasound appointment. You may be asked to change into a hospital gown upon arrival.

  • Eating and Drinking: Your healthcare provider may ask you to fast for several hours before your abdominal ultrasound. This helps reduce the amount of gas in the intestines, which can interfere with the clarity of the ultrasound images. However, water consumption is usually allowed.

  • Allergies and Health Conditions: Let your healthcare provider know about any allergies or health conditions you have. Certain factors, such as obesity or excessive intestinal gas, can affect the quality of the ultrasound images.

  • Medication : Inform your healthcare provider about any medication you are currently taking, as some might need to be adjusted before the ultrasound.
