Whether to come empty stomach or not
All ultrasound examinations of upper abdomen or whole abdomen requires you to come empty stomach.for visualisation of gall bladder in distended condition. However, practically, we are able to see it well in most of the patients and as a rule, we do not recommend empty stomach. You can have light tea and one or two biscuits in the morning . But once in a while, if gall bladder is completely contracted, we may suggest you to come empty stomach again to have a better look at gall bladder.
We do not normally recommend children to be kept empty stomach except in some situations.
When to come full bladder?
Generally all lower abdomen and whole abdomen examinations require full bladder. Also examinations of KUB and early pregnancy (generally up to 3-4 months) will require full bladder. Full bladder means you have to take lot of water at least 1-2 hrs before examination and not pass urine. A well distended urinary bladder helps in seeing uterus, ovaries and adnexa properly in females and prostate in males. It also helps in seeing small stones in bladder and ureters in KUB examination.
It is important to note that an urge to pass urine does not indicate you are having full bladder.
A really full bladder will make you uncomfortable. We need you to have full bladder, but you should be comfortable. For these examinations, come with some margin to wait as your turn may not come immediately on reaching clinic.
