Ultrasound or sonography is a procedure that uses sound waves to view internal structures of the body. High frequency sound waves are transmitted into the human body and reflected signals are then recorded to create an image. Sonography is done for brain (infants), face, neck, chest, breasts, abdomen,hand,legs and blood vessel abnormalities. Disease evaluation and stone detection are usually easily done using sonography. Abdominal screening sonography offered here, is an imaging to view the abdominal organs including liver, kidneys, gall bladder, spleen, pancreas, urinary bladder, prostate, uterus and ovaries. For the whole abdomen screening, an individual needs to be fasting for a minimum of 4to 6hrs and should have had enough water to fill his urinary bladder( urge to urinate should be there).These preparations enable clarity in imaging/ visualisation of the abnormalities.
