General Ultrasound

MUMS offer a range of ultrasound services

In addition to antenatalgynaecological, fertility, and musculoskeletal (MSK) scans – Midlands Ultrasound and Medical Services – MUMS – offers a wide range of diagnostic ultrasound scans using the latest technology to ensure the very best diagnosis and treatment for you. We also offer Adult ECHO and Paediatric ECHO.

MUMS is a specialist ultrasound clinic – renowned in the West Midlands for over two decades – offering expert consultants, radiographers and sonographers with specialist ultrasound suites – no referral necessary – and no waiting times.

Ultrasound is totally risk-free and highly reliable and results are immediate. 

Our list of available ultrasound scans is listed below:

Abdominal ultrasound scans can detect growths and tumours in the liver, kidneys or bladder, gall stones, kidney stones or cysts, cancer, abdominal aortic aneurysm and many more.

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

Kidney ultrasound scans at MUMS can detect reasons for recurrent urine infections, lower abdominal pain and other kidney related problems. 

Pancreas ultrasound scans will show the size, abnormalities and detect if any of the bile ducts are blocked.

MUMS sonographers can assess the function of the liver and check for cancer, hepatitis or cirrhosis. They are able to see tumours, abscesses, cysts and lesions. This may be performed for unexplained pain.

MUMS Sonographers can look at damage to the liver or spleen from an accident.

MUMS Sonographers perform scrotal ultrasound to look for reasons of pain or swelling. They can detect masses in the scrotum and rule out cancer. They can see whether there are any cysts or torsions.


Whether you are concerned about prostate, cancer, inflammation, genital concerns, joints or bones – you can expect the very best imaging equipment, clinicians and reports from MUMS. See below for our full list of general ultrasound to include – bladder, kidney, scrotal, abdominal ultrasound 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 scans 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 in order to accurately assess the bladder and also 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).
