Upper Abdominal and liver ultrasound scans are the most common ultrasound examinations as there are many organs within the abdominal viscera. The main organs visualised with ultrasound in the upper abdomen are the liver, the gallbladder, the pancreas, the kidneys and the spleen. Upper abdominal or RUQ pain could be related to these organs and sometimes the stomach.

The role of the liver is to process nutrients absorbed by the bowel, fight infections, remove toxins from the body such as alcohol, control cholesterol and release bile to name a few. The gallbladder which is a pear shape sack that stores the bile produced from the liver and releases it via the biliary tract when we need to break down the fat. Stones within the gallbladder called gallstones can cause pain and indigestion.

The pancreas is responsible for producing insulin and regulate the blood sugar in the bloodstream. The kidneys are responsible for filtering the toxins from the blood and also regulate the blood pressure. Kidney stones are very common and can cause pain and sometimes obstruction that can be manifested with blood in urine. The spleen which is part of the immune system and clears the blood of proliferating blood cells.

The main reasons for abdominal scans is abdominal pain or RUQ pain that sometimes can be associated with food and in most cases is related to gallstones.

About Ultrasound Scanning

Ultrasound scanning is a medical diagnostic technique where sound waves are being used to image various parts of the body.
Other terms for ultrasound imaging are sonograms, US and sonography.
Ultrasound is widely used these days as it is painless and safe to adults, children and foetuses. There are no side effects such as the ones associated with radiation.
During the ultrasound scan, the sonographer rests a small probe over the skin. This probe produces sound waves i.e pulsations that travel through the tissues. Some of the sound waves are being reflected back to the transducer and the computer analyses the returning echoes and produces the image on the screen. It is the same principle as the sonar the navy uses.
Ultrasound is being used to image mostly solid organs such as liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries, muscles and blood vessels and babies in the womb.
It has, however, limited value in organs such lungs, bone, stomach and bowel/colon.
Ultrasound images are black and white but colour Doppler is being used to evaluate organ and blood vessel blood flow and this is what the red and blue colours on the screen are.

 

Who interprets the results and how do I get them?

Your private abdominal scan will be performed and interpreted by one of four consultant Sonographers. Sonographers are specialist trained to perform the ultrasound scans and understand the ultrasound images. Our sonographers have more than 10 years experience in the field of medical ultrasound and therefore you can rest assure that you are in good hands.

 

What are the benefits and risks of the abdominal ultrasound examination?

Benefits

  • Ultrasound scanning is noninvasive.
  • An ultrasound exam should not be painful.
  • Ultrasound is widely available, easy-to-use and less expensive than other imaging modalities.
  • Ultrasound imaging is extremely safe and does not use any ionizing radiation.
  • Ultrasound scanning gives a clear picture of soft tissues such as liver that does not show up well on x-rays.

Risks

  • There are no harmful effects on humans related to ultrasound examinations.

What are the limitations of Abdominal Ultrasound Imaging?

Ultrasound does not travel well in the bowel or gas so you can not fully evaluate abdominal organs such as stomach and bowel or organs obscured by the bowel.

It can also be hard to fully visualise the internal anatomy of large patients as the sound has further to travel and therefore the returning echoes are weaker.
