Abdominal sonography

schilddruesen szintigrafie


What is an abdominal sonography?

Ultrasound examinations, also called sonographies, use high-resolution sound waves to visualise the internal organs. This procedure is painless and risk-free for patients because there is no radiation exposure.

How does the examination work?

During the examination, the ultrasound probe is pressed lightly against the skin/abdominal wall with the examiner's hand. The organs lying under the abdominal wall are imaged on an observation monitor so that the size of an organ or pathological changes can be detected. During an ultrasound examination of the abdomen, the liver, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, urinary tract, bladder and abdominal vessels are examined. Organs that contain air or gas cannot be imaged with ultrasound technology in such a way that they can be assessed.

What do I need to know before the examination?

You should not be eating or drinking (except for some still water) on the morning of the examination.

Are the costs reimbursed?

An abdominal sonography is a service that is covered by private health insurance companies. We are happy to offer the examination as an IGeL (Individual Health Service) to those with statutory health insurance.
