DIGESTMED MEDICAL CLINIC

Abdominal ultrasonography – A modern and efficient diagnosis method

The abdominal medical ultrasound is an investigation which offers information on the state of the abdominal organs – liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, spleen, bladder, prostate/uterus and their annexes. Regarding the digestive tract (esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon) the information acquired using the ultrasound method is limited, and as such their investigation is performed endoscopic (with the exception of the small intestine which is examined by enteroCT, enteroRM, barium, video-capsule and rarely endoscopic).

Also know as ultrasonography, this medical imaging method uses high-frequency sound waves to reproduce images of internal organs. The investigation is painless and non-invasive as ultrasound does not use ionized radiation (x-rays).

What does the investigation consist in and when it is recommended?

DigestMed-ecografia-abdominala

Abdominal ultrasound is performed using a probe. This probe is passed over the investigated area and it transmits the ultrasounds that the different tissues reflect back to the device screen. Prior to performing the ultrasound, the doctor applies a special gel on the area under investigation. The gel facilitates contact of the probe with the skin. In most cases, the patient is lying on the bed during the procedure.

Since it is a non-invasive and non-radiating investigation, it is advisable to perform it during the annual health assessment. Sometimes it should be repeated at shorter intervals (3-6 months) in people with chronic liver disease or for monitoring of hepatic or pancreatic nodules.

How should you prepare for abdominal ultrasound?

In order to obtain a good image, it is necessary to fast (totally avoid foods) about 4-5 hours before and to drink about half a liter of water so that the bladder is filled for an optimal examination of the prostate conditions, uterus and adnexa.
