In brief: Communication is key
There are many different types of ultrasound examinations and each is done for a different reason.
The best thing would be to talk with your doctor and find out exactly what he/she is worried about and what information will be obtained from the ultrasound. It is a wonderful tool, the ultrasound, because it does not expose yur child to any radiation.

In brief: Kidneys
If your daughter has had a urinary tract infection in the past your pediatrician may be looking for vesico-ureteral reflux which is reverse flow of urine.
The test can look at many structures in the abdomen without exposing your daughter to radiation. It doesn't hurt to ask the reason for the test.
