Why book an Lower Abdominal & Pelvic Ultrasound Scan?

  • Diagnostic Assessment: The ultrasound can detect abnormalities in the pelvic and lower abdominal organs, such as tumors, cysts, fibroids, and stones in the bladder or kidneys.
  • Monitoring and Follow-Up: For patients with known conditions, such as ovarian cysts or uterine fibroids, an ultrasound helps monitor their size and growth over time. After surgeries related to the pelvic or abdominal organs, ultrasounds are used to ensure healing is proceeding as expected and to check for any complications like infections or internal bleeding.
  • Reproductive Health: Evaluates the health of the uterus and ovaries, checking for conditions like PCOS, endometriosis, or other reproductive issues that could affect fertility and general health. It can also assess prostate health and check for issues like benign prostatic hyperplasia or prostate cancer, though detailed prostate examinations often require specific prostate ultrasounds.
  • Screening for Cancer: Regular ultrasounds can be part of a routine check-up to screen for early signs of cancer in organs like the ovaries or bladder, particularly in individuals at high risk due to family history or genetic predispositions.
  • General Health Screening: Often included in general health screenings to ensure that all is well with the pelvic and lower abdominal organs, even in the absence of symptoms, especially in older adults or those with risk factors for certain diseases.

This type of ultrasound has specific applications depending on gender, reflecting the differences in anatomy and common medical conditions each may face.

Females: Particularly useful for gynaecological evaluations, such as assessing the health of the uterus and ovaries, diagnosing ectopic pregnancies, or monitoring ovarian cysts.
Males: Can be used to evaluate issues related to the bladder and prostate and, less commonly, to assess other pelvic structures.
