- If you have a bladder catheter, this should be clamped 1-2 hours before the test.
One Hour Before
- Drink four, eight-ounce glasses of fluids.
- You may take your usual medicines before your test.
What to Expect
- Ultrasound is usually painless. However, you may experience mild discomfort.
- A typical ultrasound exam takes 30 minutes.
- Gel is put on the skin and a scanner is placed on the area to get a picture using sound waves.
