Ultrasound Imaging

Pelvic Ultrasound*

You will be asked to attend the examination with a full bladder.
The bladder, female/male pelvic organs/prostate are usually imaged.
The ultrasound transducer is placed over the lower abdominal/pelvic wall.

A full bladder is needed for optimal visualisation.
If your bladder is not sufficiently filled, you may be asked to drink water and wait until the bladder is full before rescanning.
