USG is a painless and safe imaging technique that is mainly used for capturing images of certain internal parts of the body. Having a closer look and fetching information about the organs in the abdominal cavity is the prime purpose of performing an USG whole abdomen. Some of the organs that are checked through a USG whole abdomen in Gurgaon are liver, gallbladder, kidneys, pancreas, spleen etc. As a matter of fact, this test can effectively help to detect the chances of abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Although both USG and X-ray are imaging techniques, there is a bit of difference between these two. High frequency sound waves are used in USG, on the other hand, a small amount of radiation is used in X-ray. The best thing about an ultrasound test is, it can capture real-time images. It means, It can record movement of organs as well as the flow of blood through the blood vessels. This test is most commonly used when it becomes necessary to view and examine the fetus of any pregnant woman. If the medical experts somehow suspect that you may have one of these below-mentioned conditions, then they can suggest you to go for this particular test. Some of those conditions may include,

  • Fluid in abdominal cavity
  • Blood clot
  • Enlarged organ
  • Liver cancer
  • Kidney stone
  • Pancreatitis
  • Hernia
  • Kidney blockage
  • Gallstone
  • Tumor
  • Appendicitis

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm

As mentioned before, no use of radiation is involved in the USG whole abdomen test process, so there are no risks associated with this test. Although no other preparations are required before appearing for this test, you can be suggested to fast for 8-12 hours before you appear for a USG whole abdomen.

How is the USG whole abdomen test performed?

Firstly, you will be asked to remove all kinds of jewelry as well as metal objects that you are carrying. Then you will be provided a gown and you have to go through the test procedure wearing that gown. Then you will be asked to lie down on a table. Right after you lie down, one healthcare professional will be applying a certain type of lubricating gel on your abdomen, which is known for preventing air pocket formation between the ultrasound transducer and your skin.

After the gel is applied, the transducer is used to send high frequency waves of sound through your body. The high frequency sound wave is used for the purpose of capturing images. You may feel a bit of discomfort during this test process if you are already suffering from abdominal pain. You must inform the technician if the pain keeps getting critical during the test process.

However, the previously applied gel will be removed soon after the test process is done. The ultrasound images will be interpreted by the radiologists and pathology experts. You should have a brief consultation with your doctor to know if any abnormalities have been found in the test report.

It’s not really a big deal these days to get world class USG test facilities as an USG whole abdomen test price in Gurgaon is really reasonable in so many genuine and reliable pathology labs. Health conditions like gallstones, kidney blockage or fluid in abdominal cavity may turn extremely serious if not detected or treated at the right time, so don’t delay to appear for this test if your doctor has already suggested going for this test.
