Bladder and Prostate ultrasounds examine the kidney, bladder, and prostate to look at the appearance, shape, and size. Any enlargement is detected. The sonographer can see stones, cysts or tumours and may find out the cause of urine infections.

MUMS radiographers and sonographers will look at images of your right and left kidney and prepare a report. This is to exclude hydronephrosis and dilated ureters. A survey of the urinary bladder will also be undertaken to rule out any bladder wall abnormalities or focal lesions within the bladder itself. 

Our Gynaecological scans include cervix, uterus, ovaries, bladder, endometrium. A Gynaecological scan is also referred to as a female pelvis scan and includes transabdominal and transvaginal scans.

What you can expect at MUMS when attending for an ultrasound

Ultrasound is a painless procedure with little or no preparation (apart from abdominal ultrasound). An ultrasound lasts for approximately 15-30 minutes.

A chaperone assistant will greet you and take you to one of MUMS ultrasound suites. MUMS uses the latest scanning machines and displays the images on a large screen for you to see during your scan. The chaperone assistant will respect your dignity with drapes.

The radiographer/sonographer/consultant will commence scanning, analyse the images, listen to the sounds, and prepare the report. The sonographer will talk to you and give you pointers on the screen to enable you to understand his/her findings.

Once the ultrasound is complete the clinician will talk to you again about their findings. They will give you a  signed copy of your report and offer you a follow up with one of our GPs or Consultants if necessary. We can give you an additional copy of the report to forward and discuss with your own clinician or GP.

  • Before attending any abdominal scan, you must prepare as follows: 
  • No food or drink six hours prior to scan – only water
  • Please do not eat anything after midnight, for a morning scan appointment
  • It is advisable to drink 2 or more cups of water before the scan as a full bladder is required to accurately assess the bladder and for diagnosing water retention
  • Regular medication should be taken as normal
  • No smoking or vaping six hours prior to scan (this can affect visualisation of the gall bladder).
