Practical bedside ultrasound examinations performed in our urological clinic and sharing of examinations between the central examination laboratory and outpatient doctors’ office are described herein. The number of patients with urinary disturbance is increasing as Japanese society continues to age. The triple set of diagnostic tools consisting of ultrasound examination of urinary bladder and prostate, uro-flowmetry, and ultrasound measurement of residual urine volume is very useful as the fundamental examination to diagnose those diseases. General physicians should consider the possibility of latent urological diseases when requesting sonographers to perform abdominal ultrasound screening examinations. Sonographers should also watch for latent urological disorders when performing abdominal ultrasound examinations at the request of general physicians.
