Pelvic and Urinary Tract Scan

Pelvic and Urinary Tract Private Ultrasound Scan


Private Ultrasound Clinic(PUC) offers a combined Pelvic and Urinary Tract (water system) ultrasound scan to female patients over 18 years old. Generalised lower back and pelvic pain, discomfort, bloating, with or without abnormal vaginal bleeding, pain over kidney region, blood in the urine, and urine infection are the most common reasons for having a Pelvic and Urinary Tract Ultrasound diagnostic examination, which includes the evaluation of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and pelvic organs: womb, lining, ovaries, fallopian tubes and surrounding structures. If you have a family history of any pelvic, kidney, or bladder issues, you may also wish just to have regular check-ups to ensure normal appearances and general structural health of your organs.

In this scan we will

  • Scan your kidneys, ureter, bladder, uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes
  • Take your relevant medical history
  • Provide up to 10 minutes consultation
  • Explain all findings during and after your ultrasound scan
  • Write an official scan report after or within 24 hrs, with relevant images included in the report
  • Recommend a follow-up ultrasound scan if necessary
  • Offer GP or specialist referral and a Blood Test if needed

There is a wide range of findings we may find during your urinary tract and pelvic Ultrasound scan assessment aside for normal findings, the most common are:

  • Benign or malignant findings in kidneys, ureters, bladder, uterus, ovaries, lining of the womb, including kidney stones
  • Fluid collection in the abdominal or pelvic cavity
  • Obstruction and cause of obstruction in pelvic organs, ureters, kidneys or bladder
  • Enlargement or inflammation of the kidneys, pelvic organs, ureters and bladder
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, PCOS, endometrial polyps, fluid-filled fallopian tubes
  • Uterine malformations (the shape of the womb may vary)
  • Adenomyosis and/or endometriosis

In some cases, we will recommend a relevant blood test.

  • You will be asked to drink one litre of water one hour before your appointment and attend in the clinic for your scan with full bladder your abdominal ultrasound scan appointment (please exclude having tea, coffee, or porridge)
  • You must finish drinking one litre of water one hour before your appointment
  • If you have diabetes, please eat and drink as usual.
  • If you are on medication, please take your medicines on time.

Our Ultrasound Specialists will explain the procedure before your scan. You will be offered to perform this scan in two parts: on top of your tummy for kidneys, bladder, and pelvic views and transvaginally for higher quality pelvic views. You will be provided with a gown to respect your modesty in the likelihood of an internal scan. A small amount of water-based gel will be applied to your abdomen, after which our specialist will move the probe on your skin to produce high-quality diagnostic ultrasound images. After you empty your bladder, the tip of the transvaginal probe covered with a latex-free probe cover and a small amount of sterile gel will be inserted into the vaginal canal. You may feel mild discomfort during your ultrasound scan, depending on the symptoms you are presenting with; however, you can stop or pause the examination at any moment. A pelvic and urinary tract ultrasound scan is regularly completed within 30 minutes. Our Sonographer will recommend the best course of action, depending on the ultrasound scan findings.

You will receive your results verbally after the scan. However, the Sonographer will examine the relevant images after your appointment and prepare a written report after your scan or within 24 hours with any recommended actions. The report will be sent to you so that you can discuss the findings with your doctor, if required.

There are no risks or side effects associated with the Pelvic and Urinary Tract ultrasound scan. Ultrasound does not use any radiation, which is why doctors prefer to use them to check on developing babies in pregnant women. Your safety is one of our top priorities; therefore, we strictly adhere to BMUS guidelines for the safe use of Diagnostic Ultrasound Equipment and scanning times, as well as respect the ALARA principle (As Low As Reasonably Achievable).
