What can I expect?
Radiation-Free and Non-Invasive
During your exam, you may be asked to remove jewelry or clothing, if necessary, and change into a gown. As you lie on the examination table, gel is applied and a sonographer presses a small probe (transducer) on the area being examined. The probe will be moved, as needed, to capture the image. You may experience some discomfort if the area being examined is tender, or if you are required to have a full bladder.
How should I prepare for an Ultrasound?
Most ultrasounds do not require any preparation, but there are some exceptions:
Certain exams require fasting from eating or drinking for up to six hours before your appointment. Ultrasounds of the pelvic area may require a full bladder. You may be asked to drink plenty of fluids before the exam.
