Ultrasound & Pregnancy Scan

Ultrasound includes diagnostic imaging techniques, as well as therapeutic applications of ultrasound. In diagnosis, it is used to create an image of internal body structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, blood vessels, and internal organs.

DO’S and Dont’s

  • Drink water and not go to the toilet until after the scan – this may be needed before a scan of your unborn baby or your pelvic area.
  • Avoid eating or drinking for several hours before the scan – this may be needed before a scan of your digestive system, including the liver and gallbladder.
