To scan or not to scan - the indications

Consider bladder scanning for patients with the following conditions:

Bladderscanner achterkant

If the patient has undergone an abdominal surgical intervention that may impair the ability to void by causing localized edema in the abdomen, the edema may compress the urethra, resulting in partial or complete occlusion.

This condition can impair the patient's ability to void by partially compressing the urethra and occluding the urinary exit pathway.

This can impair the patient's ability to fully empty the bladder because the urethral pathway, through which urine exits, is narrowed.

The patient's inability to void may be due to damaged neural pathways to or from the bladder.

These conditions can cause urinary retention because of edema resulting from the injury.

A stroke patient may experience an impaired ability to void because of neurologic injuries, such as paralysis or cerebral edema.

This may prevent the patient from correlating the sensation of needing to void with the physical act of voiding.

Renal calculi (kidney stones) or a renal mass may physically obstruct the outflow of urine. Although a bladder scan isn't utilized to diagnose an obstructive mass or stone, occasionally these conditions can be visualized during the scan.

This can result in incomplete emptying of the bladder due to infection, neurologic conditions, or anomalies of the renal structures. A bladder scan can assist the nurse in noting the frequency and volume of retained urine to tailor an individualized bladder retraining program for the patient.

Patients with diabetes may not have the sensation or urge to void.
