Ultrasound Whole Abdomen

A whole abdomen ultrasound or abdominal ultrasonography is an untrasound technique used to obtain real time images of the organs present in the abdominal region. The technique is comprised of transmitting ultrasound waves through the abdominal wall into the abdominal cavity.

A whole body abdominal ultrasound can be used to diagnose several different conditions of organs present in the abdominal cavity. Abdominal ultrasonography can be used to detect stones or other deformities in kidney, pancreas, abdominal aorta, liver, spleen and gallbladder. It can also be used to examine the urinary bladder, uterus and the ovaries. An abdominal ultrasonography may sometimes require the patient to drink plenty of water before undergoing the test. This is due to the reason that water is a very good medium for the propogation of ultrasound waves.
