How to prepare for your Ultrasound exam of the pelvis:

 

Eat meals – DO NOT FAST!

 

Drink 32 ounces of clear liquids (no soda) one hour and 15 minutes prior to the time of your appointment. (All of the liquid is to be in your system one hour before your appointment so that your bladder will be full.)

 

DO NOT EMPTY your bladder until your study has been completed or you have spoken with a technologist. If, for whatever reason, you are unable to maintain a full bladder, please call for further instructions.

 

We request that you arrive at all facilities 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment for patient information. We take pride in keeping on schedule, but emergencies do happen occasionally.

 

The average time for your study to be completed is approximately 30 minutes to one hour depending on the kind of amination. The technologist will perform the study, and a radiologist will occasionally scan as well. All examination results will be given to you by your referring doctor.

 

(Results cannot be given to you by the technologist.)
