Pelvic and Obstretical Ultrasound
What Does This Exam Include?
This exam may include the uterus, ovaries, and bladder in a non-pregnant patient or the uterus, ovaries, and the fetus on a pregnant patient.
You will be asked to have a full bladder for these tests About 2 hours before your test, empty your bladder. Within 30-45 minutes, drink 32oz. of water or clear liquids (non-caffeinated). If you do not feel your bladder is full 30 minutes prior to your exam, drink more water. If your bladder is not full enough at exam time, you will be asked to drink more, which could prolong your test time. This preparation can be difficult for some patients; we try to accommodate you and perform the exam so that you may use the restroom as quickly as possible.
