Why Would You Need An Abdominal Ultrasound?

An abdominal ultrasound can help determine the cause of stomach pain or bloating. It can help check for kidney stones, liver disease, inflammation, tumors, and many other conditions.

We may recommend this test if you have a condition affecting any of these body areas:

How to Prep

For Your Abdominal Ultrasound

  1. We will provide you with specific instructions before your exam.
  2. Sometimes, it is necessary to avoid food and drinks for 8 to 12 hours before the procedure. Fasting helps prevent gas buildup in the belly area, which could affect your results.
  3. Our staff is happy to assist you with any concerns or questions.

We are here for you.

What to Expect

The Day of Your Abdominal Ultrasound

  1. When you arrive, we will make sure you feel comfortable and respected.
  2. An abdominal ultrasound is a simple, painless procedure. While lying on your back, one of our sonographers will apply a special gel to your abdomen. Gently pressing the ultrasound device against your belly and moving it back and forth produces real-time images that show how blood flows through your belly area.

An abdominal ultrasound exam takes about 30 minutes to complete.
