How can I prepare for my Abdominal or Pelvic Ultrasound Scan?

Today we’re going to talk about what preparations are required for an Abdominal Scan & Pelvic Scan.

Before attending for a Pelvic Ultrasound we recommend our patient’s drink 1 Litre of water one hour prior to their appointment time.

Before an Abdominal Ultrasound, patient’s are required to fast from food for at least 6 hours before their ultrasound (4 hours for small children if possible). A small amount of water is okay.

We recommend our patient’s allow up to 30-45 minutes for this examination to be completed.

If you would like to make an appointment or have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact by phone or email, we are always happy to help!
