The Full Abdomen ultrasound scan examines the liver, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, appendix, urinary tract, prostate and bladder. We can also examine the blood vessels that lead to some of the organs, like the portal vein and aorta.
The Upper Abdomen ultrasound scan examines the liver, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys and the abdominal aorta.
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.
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.
This scan assesses the size and shape of the Uterus and the ovaries. This scan is used to detect ovarian pathology such as cysts and cancer.
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.

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.
