FAQ

1. What is a Female Health Ultrasound check?

An ultrasound Female Health Check assesses your internal body organs by performing several separate body scans and then brings them together to create a complete assessment of your body. It is a safe method to get an overall picture of your female health which enables early detection of potential health conditions.

We scan the following internal organs as part of the assessment:

– Liver
– Spleen
– Gallbladder
– Pancreas
– Abdominal aorta
– Urinary bladder
– Uterus
– Cervix
– Ovaries

2. Ultrasound Female Health Check: What happens at my appointment

Your appointment will take a maximum of 30 minutes. Here is what happens at your appointment:
1. Once you arrive, you’ll be asked asked to change in to a medical gown and remove any clothing from your torso area as well as jewellery, accessories and other objects which may interfere with the ultrasound scan.

2. You’ll be required to lie flat on your back on an examination table. Your doctor will then apply a water based gel the area of assessment. The gel works alongside a handheld scanning device to create images by helping sound waves pass through the torso more efficiently.

3. To begin the examination, a handheld scanning device (the ultrasound transducer head which sends high frequency sound waves into the body and picks up responding signals), will be pressed against your skin in the area of assessment, moving back and forth whilst applying mild to medium pressure in order to get clear images which will be visible in real-time on a display screen for your doctor. You’ll be asked to breathe in and hold your breath a number of times and also requested to turn onto your side so that your doctor can manoeuvre the transducer for different angles and better images. The procedure does not cause any discomfort.

4. During the scan of the bladder, we’ll begin by taking images with a full bladder, then have additional images taken with an empty bladder.You’ll be asked to empty your bladder at this stage.

5. Once your doctor is satisfied with the quantity and quality of images, you’ll be given a tissue to wipe the gel off, you can then get dressed.

6. The doctor will discuss the results of the scan with you. A specialist consultant radiologist will review and assess your scan results and provide a comprehensive medical report for you and your doctor.

Following the examination the images are processed and reviewed by a Consultant Radiologist who will provide your doctor with a report. We endeavour to give both you and your GP access to your results on the same day of your scan.

You can expect the scan to last between 20-30 minutes. Please give yourself plenty of time for your appointment.

As the scan is non-invasive and non-surgical there is no aftercare or recovery requirements so you can go home immediately after your appointment.

3. Ultrasound Female Health Check: Preparation for the appointment

We recommend drinking 2 pints (approximately 4 glasses) of water about an hour before your appointment so your bladder is sufficiently full in preparation for the ultrasound examination.
