Preparation

PELVIC ULTRASOUND

You can eat and drink normally.

An hour before the exam, drink three glasses of water in order to fill your bladder. Generally, this amount should be sufficient so that your bladder is full when we perform the ultrasound exam, so do not urinate in the meantime.

ABDOMINAL ULTRASOUND OR HEPATIC DOPPLER

Fasting state five hours before the exam (no drinking, no eating, smoking or chewing).

FOR OTHER ULTRASOUNDS

No preparation required.
