UROLOGICAL

Expertise when it matters most

Urological diseases or infections include urinary tract infections (UTIs), kidney stones, bladder control problems and prostate problems. The urinary tract is one of the body’s ways of excreting waste in the form of urine – a mix of water and waste products. To be able to urinate normally, every part of the urinary tract needs to be functioning properly – kidneys, ureters and bladder.

A range of different scans are available for diagnosing urological conditions. Once the diagnosis has been made, the majority of conditions can be successfully treated and life can resume as normal, without the discomfort and embarrassment of urological problems.

  • Kidney or bladder stones, tumours or cysts
  • Obstruction of the kidneys
  • Abnormal kidney shape
  • Enlarged prostate
  • Blood in the urine
  • Difficulties urinating
  • Frequent UTIs (urinary tract infections)
  • Long-lasting pelvic pain
  • Bladder cancer
  • Bladder control problems in women and men
  • Erectile dysfunction

Type of Chest & Cardiovascular scans that are available:

This type of scan is effective at detecting kidney stones or obstruction of the kidneys. CT is also used to characterise lumps and cysts in the kidney, to decide if they may be a cancer.

Ultrasound scans are used to investigate abnormalities of the kidney that might be caused by cysts or early tumours as well as an enlarged prostate gland.

MRI of the prostate is now a widely used test to investigate symptoms related to the prostate and look for causes of a high PSA blood test. MRI can identify areas that are suspicious for cancer and allow them to be targeted during a biopsy.

This is a test to determine the rate and volume of urine produced. The test is performed with a full bladder so patients need to drink plenty of fluid beforehand.
