The upper-abdominal scan

The upper-abdominal scan can be taken by female patients from 16 years of age. The scan provides details regarding the size, condition and shape of: the kidneys, the liver, the gall bladder, pancreas and biliary system, as well as the spleen and the central blood vessels.

Why take an upper-abdominal scan?

Patients come to our ultrasound clinic to take this scan for several reasons: to assess the general condition of the kidneys and the liver, as well as detecting polyps or gall stones.

How to prepare for an upper-abdominal scan?

This scan requires 8 hours of fasting. If the appointment is scheduled for morning, the patient is required to skip or postpone breakfast, and similarly, there will be no lunch for a later appointment. However, clear fluids are allowed, including black tea and coffee.

If the patient has diabetes, food intake is allowed, with the avoidance of fat products or dairy products.

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