What is an abdominal and pelvic ultrasound?
We kindly ask that all bookings and payments are to be done online below by selecting your preferred location. You need to have a referral letter from a doctor with an Irish Medical Council (IMC) or Medical Council Registration (MCRN) number before making a booking. Please send your referral in to us prior to making your appointment. You can email us a scanned copy or clear photograph of the referral to email@example.com. Once the email has been sent you can proceed to make your online booking.
Alternatively, if your doctor has already sent us a copy of your referral via Healthlink or Email, we will make contact with you to arrange an appointment.
An abdominal and pelvic ultrasound scan serves to image the upper abdominal organs and the lower pelvic organs. The most common reason for referral for this procedure is generalised abdominal pain, though there are many other reasons why your doctor can refer you for this. It is a quick, non-invasive way of confirming or excluding certain pathology in relation to the upper abdominal and pelvic organs. In most cases, your doctor will combine blood tests with this examination in order to come to a more accurate diagnosis.
