What you need to know about Abdominal Ultrasound in Selangor

An abdominal ultrasound is a noninvasive procedure performed to view structures inside the abdomen. This includes the pancreas, gallbladder, liver, bile ducts, spleen, appendix, stomach, large and small intestine, bladder, and abdominal aorta. 

Using high-frequency sound waves, an abdominal ultrasound can show a quick, real-time visualization of the abdominal organs and structures from outside the body. It can also show the blood flowing through blood vessels. This test is commonly used to view and examine the fetus in pregnant women. However, it also has numerous other clinical uses. Your doctor may use an abdominal ultrasound to diagnose the following conditions:

  • Abdominal pain

  • Kidney stones

  • Liver disease

  • Gallstones

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm

  • Appendicitis

  • Fluid in the abdominal cavity

  • Inflammatory conditions, such as pancreatitis or appendicitis

  • Pyloric stenosis

  • Hernia

  • Abdominal growths, such as tumors

  • Cancer.

Abdominal ultrasound is also the preferred screening method for an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Doctors usually recommend this procedure to screen for an abdominal aortic aneurysm in men aged 65 to 75 who smoke or used to smoke cigarettes. 

Besides, an abdominal ultrasound may also be used to help guide your doctor during certain procedures, such as during an abdominal biopsy or to help your doctor drain fluid from an abscess or fluid.

What's the Recovery Time?

You may be able to resume your usual diet and return to your normal activities straight away after an abdominal ultrasound unless your doctor advises you differently.

What's the Success Rate?

Abdominal ultrasounds have a high accuracy and sensitivity rate. According to a study, its accuracy is highest for splenic masses (100%) and for aortic aneurysm (88%). If the results of abdominal ultrasound show that you a problem, such as an aneurysm, is present, you and your doctor will decide on a management or treatment plan.

Certain factors or conditions may interfere with the accuracy rate of an ultrasound, which includes:

  • Food inside the stomach

  • Severe or morbid obesity

  • Excess intestinal gas

  • Barium, which is a liquid that you swallow in some tests that can help your doctor see your gastrointestinal tract and stomach, within the intestines from a recent barium procedure.

Abdominal ultrasound is highly unlikely to cause any harm or negative effects. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it has “an excellent safety record.”
