WHAT IS BLADDER ULTRASOUND?

The bladder is an organ made of smooth muscle. It stores urine until it’s released when you go to the bathroom. The most common reason for bladder ultrasound is to check bladder draining. The urine that remains in the bladder after urinating (“post void residual”) is measured. If urine remains, there can be a problem such as:

  • Enlarged prostate
  • Urethral stricture (narrowing)
  • Bladder dysfunction

HOW IS IT DONE?

The exam is done as you lay on your back on the exam table. A gel is spread on the skin to help transmit the sound waves. The transducer is placed between your navel and pubic bone. The image is viewed on a monitor and read on the spot. To check bladder draining, you’ll be asked to void. When you return, the bladder will be imaged again.

RESULTS

Your doctor will interpret the ultrasound results and discuss them with you. If the test results appear abnormal, your doctor may order further tests.

RISKS

No risks are associated with a bladder ultrasound. Unlike X-rays, radiation isn’t involved with this test.
