Preparing for Your Visit
When you have an ultrasound with us, a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS) will conduct your exam, and one of our credentialed physicians will interpret the results.
- Gynecological scan (virginal patients): Drink 32 ounces of liquid one hour prior to the exam for abdominal imaging.
- Gynecological scan (all other patients): You will receive a transvaginal exam, and no preparations are required.
- Obstetrical patients (first trimester): If you are receiving a transvaginal exam, no preparations are required. If you are getting a Nuchal Translucency screening, you need to drink 16-24 ounces of fluid one hour prior to your exam.
- Obstetrical patients (second & third trimester): You will need to have a full bladder, which means you should drink 32 ounces of fluid prior to either your transabdominal or transvaginal ultrasound.
