Ultrasound Abdomen & Pelvis Preparation

For a morning appointment (9am - 1pm)
Fast from midnight on the night before the scan. In order to perform an ultrasound scan of the pelvis, it is necessary that your bladder is full to bursting, i.e. "bursting to go to the loo". To achieve this you must drink at east one and a half pints of water or whatever is necessary for you to reach this limit. Unfortunately, should your bladder not be filled enough it may result in your appointment having to be rescheduled.

For an afternoon appointment (2pm-5pm)
A light breakfast is permitted, however please avoid fatty foods/milk products. Again, in order to perform an ultrasound scan of the pelvis it is necessary that your bladder is full to bursting, i.e. "bursting to go to the loo". To achieve this you must drink at least one and a half pints of water or whatever is necessary for you to reach this limit. Unfortunately, should your bladder not be filled enough it may result in your appointment having to be rescheduled.
