During the kidney ultrasound, the patient may be asked to turn sideways. The aim here is to visualize the kidney and surrounding tissues from different angles.

What is examined during a kidney ultrasound?

During a kidney ultrasound, not only the patient's kidneys but also the bladder and the channels between the kidney and the bladder are examined.

This examination is usually requested by urologists and the procedure is performed by Radiology Specialist Doctors.

The patient is not required to be hungry before this test is performed. Before the Kidney Ultrasound, the patient should drink water and collect urine in the bladder. The bladder must be full for the bladder to be examined. During the kidney ultrasound, kidney stones can be detected, as well as changes caused by infection in the kidney can be examined.

During the kidney ultrasound, the size of the kidney stone to be detected and its location in the kidney are determined. This determination is important for the planning of the treatment or surgery to be performed by the urologist.
