Ultrasound examination (sonography)    
     

Sonography examinations are conducted using sound waves, eliminating the need to expose patients to potentially hazardous radiation. This is why ultrasound scans can also be done on pregnant patients. Ultrasound may be used to examine various regions of the body:

   

   

Abdominal organs (liver, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys)

   
    Reproductive organs (uterus, ovaries, breast; testicles)    
    Organs in the neck (thyroid gland, salivary glands)    
    Lymph glands, muscles and tendons    
    Carotid and cerebral arteries (colour-coded duplex sonography)

   

     


   

      Preparation    
   

Patients having ultrasound scans of the liver, gall bladder and/or upper abdominal organs have to fast (no food or drink) for six hours before the examination.

   
    For examinations of the lower abdominal organs (bladder, uterus, ovaries; prostate gland) the bladder should be as full as possible.

   

      Special examinations
   
    Ultrasound examinations of babies and young children    
    Hip ultrasound on babies    
     
We are unfortunately unable to offer ultrasound examinations of the blood vessels in the leg as these are not covered by Austrian health insurance.
