At Metro Central Ultrasound, our professional technicians are well-equipped to perform gallbladder ultrasound procedures efficiently and accurately. An ultrasound of the gallbladder allows a doctor or specialist to more closely examine your gallbladder and other organs in the upper abdominal area. This is an extremely safe and painless procedure that will allow medical professionals to make a more accurate diagnosis of potential ailments.
If your gallbladder ultrasound is scheduled for the morning, do not eat anything after 8:00 pm the evening prior. If your appointment is during the afternoon, avoid eating for seven hours prior to your ultrasound. Take any medications as you normally would.
During your appointment with Metro Central Ultrasound, one of our skilled technicians will use a small handheld transducer or probe and water-based gel on your upper abdomen, passing the device over your skin. High-frequency sound waves are transmitted into your body from the probe and through the gel. These sound waves bounce back, and are collected by the transducer. A computer will then translate this information to create an image of the tissues, organs and other structures in your upper abdomen. This data will then be passed on to a specialist or your doctor for further examination and diagnosis.
