How does a bladder ultrasound work?
A bladder ultrasound can show how much urine the bladder holds when it’s full and whether a person has the ability to completely empty the bladder when urinating. Bladder ultrasound can detect abnormalities of the bladder, including size, blockages or stones, and thickness of the bladder walls.
Addressing Bladder Concerns
A bladder ultrasound is often performed in conjunction with a kidney ultrasound.
Bladder ultrasound can give information about:
- The bladder wall
- Diverticula (pouches) of the bladder
- Bladder stones
- Large tumors in the bladder
