Private Hernia Scan

 A hernia occurs when an internal part of the body pushes through a weakness in the muscle or surrounding tissue wall.  In many cases, hernias cause no symptoms or very few symptoms. You may notice a swelling or lump in your tummy (abdomen) or groin that can often be pushed back in or will disappear when you lie down. Coughing or straining may make the lump to re-appear.

 Types of hernias:  

Hernias can occur throughout the body, but most often develop in the areas of your body between your chest and hips.

Some of the more common types of a hernia are:

  •  Inguinal hernias  

Inguinal hernias occur when fatty tissue or a part of your bowel pokes through into your groin at the top of your inner thigh.  This is the most common type of a hernia and it mainly affects men. It is often associated with ageing and repeated strain on the abdomen.

  • Femoral hernias

Femoral hernias also occur when fatty tissue or a part of your bowel pokes through into your groin at the top of your inner thigh. They are much less common than inguinal hernias and tend to affect more women than men.  Like inguinal hernias, femoral hernias are also associated with ageing and repeated strain on the abdomen.  

  • Umbilical hernias  

Umbilical hernias occur when fatty tissue or a part of your bowel pokes through your abdomen near your belly button (navel).

Other types of a hernia that can affect the abdomen:

  • Incisional hernias – these occur when tissue pokes through a surgical wound in your abdomen that has not fully healed.

  • Epigastric hernias – these occur when fatty tissue pokes through your abdomen, between your navel and the lower part of your breastbone (sternum).

  • Spigelian hernias – these occur when part of your bowel pokes through your abdomen at the side of your abdominal muscle, below your navel.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

What is the purpose of this hernia scan?

A hernia private ultrasound scan includes evaluation of:

  • General groin region
  • Inguinal canal
  • Area of swelling

Reasons for having a hernia ultrasound scan include:

  • Suspecting a hernia
  • Lump in the groin region
  • Abdominal lump
  • Umbilical lump

 

Preparation for the hernia scan

No preparation is necessary for this scan.

 

What should I expect during the ultrasound examination?

Before the scan, our sonographer will explain the examination procedure. You will be asked to lie on the examination couch exposed part of your abdomen. We will put a little gel on your skin and a small ultrasound probe will be used to obtain images of your internal organs.
During and after the examination our sonographer will explain the findings and an ultrasound report will be issued to take away with you.

 

About Ultrasound Scanning

Ultrasound imaging is a medical diagnostic technique where sound waves are being used to image various parts of the body.
Other terms for ultrasound imaging are sonograms, US and sonography.
Ultrasound is widely used these days as it is painless and safe for adults, children and foetuses. There are no side effects such as the ones associated with radiation.
During the ultrasound scan, the sonographer rests a small probe over the skin. This probe produces sound waves i.e pulsations that travel through the tissues. Some of the sound waves are being reflected back to the transducer and the computer analyses the returning echoes and produces the image on the screen. It is the same principle as the sonar the navy uses.
Ultrasound is being used to image mostly solid organs such as liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries, muscles and blood vessels and babies in the womb.
It has, however, limited value in organs such lungs, bone, stomach and bowel/colon.
Ultrasound images are black and white but colour Doppler is being used to evaluate organ and blood vessel blood flow and this is what the red and blue colours on the screen are.

 

Price: £142.00 (Bi-lateral £199)

What is a difference between sonography and ultrasound?

The word Sonography is made up of sono and graphy. Sono comes from the Latin Sonos which means sound and graphy from the Greek word grafei which means writing. So writing [drawing] images using sound and in our case high frequency sound. Today it is more common to hear the expression of medical ultrasound than medical sonography in the UK.

 

What is an ultrasound scan? 

Ultrasound imaging is a medical diagnostic technique where sound waves are being used to image various parts of the body.
Other terms used are ultrasonography, sonograms, US, echography  and sonography.
Ultrasound is widely used these days as it is painless and safe for adults, children and foetuses. There are no side effects such as the ones associated with ionising radiation produced by other imaging modalities such as CT and plain x-rays.
During the examination, the sonographer rests a small probe called transducer over the skin. This probe produces high frequency, sound waves i.e. pulsations that travel through your skin and inside your body. Part of the sound waves are being reflected back to the transducer and the computer analyses the returning echoes and produces the image on the scnner screen. Medical ultrasonography uses the same principle as the sonar that the navy uses to detect submarines.
The medical test is being used to image mostly solid soft organs such as liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries, muscles and blood vessels and babies in the womb. It has, however, limited value in organs such as lungs, bone, stomach and bowel/colon.
The images are black and white but colour Doppler is being used to evaluate organ blood flow and blood vessels and this is what the red and blue colours on the screen are.
