The abdominal organs

Sonographic screenings of the abdominal organs are the most frequent ones. This is probably why they are often considered easy and fast to be done.

The many different organs (such as the liver, gall bladder, bile ducts, pancreas, the left and right kidneys, the adrenal gland, spleen, lymph nodes, the large vessels and their branches, the parts of the colon and the small intestine, bladder, ovaries, uterus, prostate gland) can usually be screened through the abdominal wall. This scan, however, needs time and the practitioner`s expertise to be carried out and evaluated with the due care. The initial issue in question leading to the exam is therefore essential for the quality of the screening itself.

The patient is lying on the back during the exam that takes 10 to 30 minutes. In the case of specific problems or certain anatomical conditions (like overweight) the possibility of doing the exam in the morning with the patient having an empty stomach should be considered.
