About the Private Abdominal Scan

An abdominal scan provides a non-invasive diagnosis method that can help investigate various problems within the abdominal area. Our private abdominal ultrasound scan provides a comprehensive evaluation of the major organs within the upper abdomen including the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, spleen and aorta. 

Unlike other medical imaging tests, this test does not use ionising radiation. Instead, it uses sound waves to produce digital images of the abdominal organs, allowing our ultrasound experts to examine their size, shape, and structure, and to check for any signs of disease or abnormality. 

The ultrasound can detect changes in the size and shape of the organs, tissues or blood vessels and even show if there’s an abnormal mass present, such as a tumour.

Objective of the Private Abdominal Scan

Our private abdominal scan aims to provide a detailed assessment of the abdominal organs, including the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas and kidneys.  This ultrasound scan is suitable for both men and women.

  • Liver
  • Gallbladder
  • Bile ducts
  • Pancreas
  • Kidneys
  • Spleen

What can the Private Abdominal Scan detect?

An abdominal ultrasound health scan can check a variety of things within the abdomen. The scan uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the organs and tissues. Some of the things our private abdominal ultrasound can check for include:

  • Size, shape and structure of the organs
  • Signs of liver disease such as a fatty liver or cirrhosis
  • Detection of gallstones or gallbladder disease
  • Presence of kidney stones
  • Presence of any cysts, tumours, or other abnormal growths
  • Presence of any abdominal fluid (ascites)

Benefits of having the Private Abdominal Scan

If you have a problem or concern, an abdominal ultrasound scan can be used as a diagnostic tool to investigate the cause or simply rule certain things out. 

Your doctor or GP may request an ultrasound scan in which case you can visit an NHS facility or a private scan clinic like The Scan Clinic. We provide a wide range of private abdomen ultrasounds and private gallbladder scans with numerous benefits, including; 

  • We don’t have a waiting period. You schedule an appointment and have your scan taken.
  • You save time because you don’t have to wait in a queue
  • You get the best care from qualified and experienced professionals 
  • You get an instant verbal summary of your results
  • You get a detailed ultrasound results report which you can present to you doctor
  • The scans are taken using the latest and most advanced equipment for the best results
  • Better comfort and convenience while getting your scan

A private gallbladder scan costs more than going to an NHS facility. But when time is of the essence, and you need to get results quickly, a private abdominal scan is the best option. They are fast, convenient and put the interests of the patient first.

Why do I need a Private Abdominal Scan

A healthcare provider might request an abdominal ultrasound for various reasons. The most common is investigating various symptoms or concerns about the organs in the abdominal area. Our private abdominal ultrasound aims to provide a thorough evaluation of the upper abdominal organs.

Some of the symptoms or conditions that may require an abdominal ultrasound include the following; 

  • Abdominal pain
  • Fatty Liver Disease
  • Bloating or distention 
  • Gallbladder disease 
  • Enlarged organs (like the liver or spleen) 
  • Altered liver function 
  • Liver lesions 
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm 
  • Kidney stones
  • Pancreas problems

 

You may consider our private abdominal ultrasound for a general check-up or you may be suffering with certain problems where the abdominal ultrasound could provide useful information for your doctors. 

In most instances the scans provide a good picture of the organs and structures in the abdomen, it does however have some limitations that you should be aware of before going for the test; 

  • Trapped air or gas can obstruct the view of some organs 
  • Abdominal fat tissue can prevent sound waves from penetrating 
  • The intestines may get in the way and prevent clear visualisation of abdominal structures 

If there are concerns of such interference with the result of the scan, the healthcare provider might order a different test, like an MRI or a CT scan.

What does the Private Abdominal Scan involve?

During the scan, you will be asked to uncover the area being scanned, hence we advise to wear suitable loose clothing and a small amount of ultrasound gel will be placed over your skin.

An ultrasound camera (‘probe’) will then be placed on top and moved along and around the area. This results in a picture appearing on the ultrasound monitor and patient TV which will be translated by the clinical specialist/ medical practitioner.

The ultrasound scan itself usually lasts around 10-15 minutes and is pain-free. At the end of the scan, a verbal summary of the results will be provided, as well as your opportunity to ask any questions.

How do I prepare*

It's really important to arrive with the correct preparation as failure to do so may result in us not being able to perform the scan.

Fasting

  • You will need to have been fasting from food for at least 6 hours before having this scan, however, you may drink clear fluids such as water.
  • If you are diabetic, then maintain your normal food intake but try your best to avoid fatty or dairy products for at least 6 hours before having the scan.
  • You may maintain your normal medication regime.

I've been to this clinic 4 times over the past 7 years for both pregnancy scans and health scans.... What sterling services they consistently provide! Booking is always easy either online or over the phone, minimum waiting time, and calming environment. What's most impressive is that Mr Usman always explained the scan results thoroughly in a calm and professional way on site and in a report, and quickly spotted issues that both my hospital scan and community clinic scan completely missed (the sonographer at the hospital even asked where I did my scan as she was impressed)! This helped me eventually get timely referral and free from lots of stress. I always feel being well looked after by the team and will wholehearted recommend them to anyone who is looking for efficient, caring and professional help.read more

Private Abdominal Scan FAQ's

How much is a private abdominal scan in London?

The price of an ultrasound scan varies depending on the reason for the test and what is being investigated. But the average cost of the scan is about €150

What does an abdominal scan show?

The scan is used to image the upper abdominal organs, which include the pancreas, the gallbladder, the liver, the spleen, the kidneys, IVC and the aorta. The scan can show changes in the shape and size of the organs, aneurysms and abnormal masses like tumours or cysts.

What cancers can an abdominal ultrasound detect?

An ultrasound is incapable of detecting cancer on its own without additional testing. However, the scan can show any abnormal growths in various organs in the upper abdominal cavity. It can reveal tumours in the stomach, pancreas, gallbladder and liver, which might be cancerous. Additional testing is required to confirm if these tests are cancerous.

Can abdominal ultrasound detect bowel problems?

Our abdominal scan does not pick up bowel problems, however, other specialised scans may help detect various bowel problems, such as bowel inflammation.

Do tumours show up on abdominal ultrasound?

Yes. Ultrasound scans can show tumours and other abnormal growths like cysts. However, further tests must be ordered to confirm the tumour and its nature.

Do they tell you the results of the ultrasound scan straight away?

The ultrasound scan examination typically lasts 20-30 minutes. A verbal summary is provided following your scan with a detailed written scan report sent to you within 48 hours.

In hospitals, the results are typically ready a week or so after your scan by your usual healthcare provider.
