What is a Urinary Bladder Ultrasound?
Urinary Bladder Ultrasound is a painless radiology exam which is performed to help diagnose pain and evaluate the bladder in a non-invasive manner. This exam can be used to check for abnormalities such as cysts or tumors, as well as used to detect the presence of blockages and bladder infections.
