Abdomen ultrasounds use high frequency sound waves to visualize and assess various abdominal organs, including the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, aorta, inferior vena cava, and spleen. Please inform the sonographer performing your exam if you’ve had abdominal surgery or the removal of your gallbladder, spleen, or kidney.
We do our best to have our radiologists interpret the information and forward the results to your doctor by the next business day.
This exam is covered under the Alberta and Saskatchewan Health Care Plans.
Please ensure that you bring your requisition with you to your appointment.
