Certain symptoms might benefit from a pelvic and/or upper abdominal ultrasound scan to detect any possible internal issue. A full report and imagery are produced, which can be passed on to referring medical specialists. At Bodyvie we offer private ultrasound scans for wellbeing and peace of mind.

An abdominal scan is often used as the first line of investigation when looking at a wide variety of clinical conditions experienced by both men and women. The sooner that any concerns are investigated, the better. Ultrasound scan can:

  • detect bloating or abdominal swelling
  • detect gall stones or polyps
  • assess the liver
  • assess kidneys and function
  • investigate urinary problems
  • investigate general abdominal pain

During your appointment, a detailed scan will allow your sonographer to take a detailed look at the size, shape, internal structure and condition of the:

  • gall bladder, biliary system and pancreas
  • liver
  • both kidneys
  • spleen and central blood vessels

The scan will enable an experienced Sonographer to differentiate between solid or cystic masses; including tumours, abscesses, fluid collection and inflammation within the abdomen, as well as calculi (stones) stones in the Kidneys, Ureters and Gall Bladder.

The Sonographer can also visualise and measure the abdominal aorta (the main blood vessel leading from the heart) to detect the presence of an aortic aneurysm.

In order for your sonographer to comfortably scan the required area, we ask that patients wear both top and bottom garments to easily expose the abdomen i.e. trousers or skirt and a top.

To ensure clear visuals during the scan, patients are required to fast for 8 hours. Clear fluids including black tea or coffee are however permitted. Diabetic patients should ideally request morning appointments, otherwise maintain food intake to control blood sugar, but avoid fatty or dairy products ahead of the scan. Any medications can be maintained as usual.

"I saw Dr Weber for a private consult following
a misdiagnosis of depression by my GP.
Dr Weber suggested it sounded like perimenopause
and moved me off antidepressants
and on to HRT. I'm back to my old self
and can't thank him enough!"
