Ultrasound Scan of the Pancreas

At MUMS we offer ultrasound scan of the Pancreas to patients aged 16 and over.

An ultrasound of your pancreas is performed to enable our radiographers and sonographers to examine images to detect signs of inflammation or indications that there is a blockage of bile flow. They use this painless, non-invasive technique – using sound waves that bounce off tissue and organs to examine the pancreas to evaluate abnormalities.

Pancreatic ultrasound can be used to assess for pancreatic malignancy, pancreatitis and its complications, as well as for other pancreatic pathology.

We ask our patients to prepare for pancreas ultrasound by fasting to reduce interference from bowel gas that can create poor visualisation of the pancreas. This means fasting for 6 hours prior to the scan. Drink water only.

We can offer peace of mind and reassurance with high calibre radiographers performing a scan on your pancreas. Ultrasound is non-invasive, safe and reliable. 

MUMS patients can self-refer or bring a referral from their clinician. There are no waiting times and booking is easy. A Pancreas scan costs £195.00. You will be given a report at the end of the scan. The report can be analysed by MUMS clinicians for any onward referral.

You can call us on 0121 704 2669 to book or you can make an enquiry on our website. You can even book an pay online.

MUMS has been offering ultrasound for two decades – offering affordable ultrasound for rapid diagnosis using the the most experienced clinicians.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • No, you do not need a referral, you can just book in for a scan. We will provide you with a full report at the end of the scan and you can forward a copy to your GP as well.

  • We will ask you to not eat or drink anything after 9pm the night before the scan, except for water. If you have a full abdominal scan, it is good to drink water as we can measure your bladder before and after emptying to make sure there is no urine retention.

  • You get the results immediately after the scan, we email you a copy of the report and we can give you a printed copy for your GP as well.
