The kidneys, ureters and bladder scan

The kidneys, ureters and bladder scan is available at our ultrasound clinic for female patients over the age of 16. Its purpose is to have a detailed look at the condition, size and shape of the bladder, before being emptied and after, and at both kidneys and the ureters.

Why take a kidneys, ureters and bladder scan?

Most commonly, female patients resort to this particular type of ultrasound scan in order to look for what is causing persistent bladder issues, or to investigate the effects of urinary tract infections (UTI), or to have a look at the obstructions caused by kidney or bladder stones.

How to prepare for a kidneys, ureters and bladder scan?

Please drink 0.5 Litres (1 pint) of clear fluid approximately 1 hour prior to your scheduled appointment. Fizzy drinks or milk are not advisable. Also, we ask you to not empty your bladder before the ultrasound scan.

We use gently warmed Ultrasound Gel to help you relax, and make you feel comfortable during your scan.
