Trans abdominal ultrasound scan to assess the bladder and kidneys

Trans abdominal ultrasound scan. Some warm gel is applied to your lower abdomen and a probe is used to transmit ultrasound images to the screen for interpretation.

These scans are to assess your bladder and kidneys. For men we also image the prostate gland but provide a measurement only, not an assessment for prostate cancer.

These scans are done for many reasons e.g. pain in the back or pelvis, kidney stones, blood in the urine, incontinence, and bladder infections.
