Ultrasound for the Urologist
ultrasonography plays an essential role in the evaluation of urinary tract abnormalities in cases of medical or surgical renal illnesses. It also eliminates the requirement for contrast material injection or ingestion. It requires no intervention or preparation and can distinguish between the many causes of flank pain. For both the physician and the patient, urologist-operated sonography is a rapid, cost-effective, and time-saving method for getting a first or final diagnosis. Patients can be chosen for appropriate care and subsequent assessment based on the results.
Bladder Scans: Preventing Unnecessary Procedures
A bladder scanner is a portable, hand-held ultrasound instrument that can scan the bladder quickly, easily, and non-invasively. An ultrasonic probe and transducer are used in the scanner to reflect sound waves from the patient’s bladder to the scanner. The data is subsequently sent to a computer in the handheld unit, which calculates the bladder volume automatically. Bladder scanning or Bladder Scan, the brand name of a popular, portable bladder scanner, is another term for this ultrasonography treatment.
