Ultrasound Testing

Take Appointment

You can walk in for any test but it always advisable to get a prior appointment in order to reduce your waiting time. Taking appointment is very simple - you can do it online or by calling our executives on the phone numbers given on the website or other online platforms

Ultrasound

We need you to be fasting for atleast 4 hours or better overnight fasting for Abdominal ultrasound so that we can see the gall bladder in distented condition which is very important to comment on gall stones. For any ultrasound other than the abdominal ultrasounds fasting is not required.

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.

What is 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.

Examination of children

Examination of small children is difficult if they are crying. A well satisfied child is less prone to crying. We do not normally recommend them to be kept empty stomach except in some situations. Sometimes child may need to be sedated.

Pregnancy Ultrasound

Drink 2 to 3 glasses of fruit juice/Water 20-30 minutes prior to the appointment unless otherwise ordered by your physician. We would like your baby to be awake during your exam for more thrilling experience. We would also like some fluids in your bladder to bring the baby's head out of the pelvis, but it does not need to be extremely full.

CT Scan Examination

Contrast administration

Most of the examination will require administration of contrast. This is generally so when we suspect infective/inflammatory pathology or mass lesion. It is also administered for vascular studies and other special applications. Reports for kidney function such as blood urea, serum creatinine or any other investigation that may have been done for kidneys should be brought at the time of examination. Any history of diabetes and drugs that are being taken should be available.

CT Coronary Angiography

It is preferable to be fasting three hours prior to the test. Also one or two glasses of water one hour prior to investigation will give better results. Please bring all your relevant medical records such as any procedure done, creatinine and sugar levels and details of drugs being used. After the procedure, we advise you to again take 3-4 glasses of water in next 2 hours.

Upper abdomen and whole abdomen examinations

It is essential to come with overnight fasting for these examinations. Investigations will take 2-3 hrs or even more to complete as oral contrast is generally given and it takes time to reach colon. We normally do not ask patient to come with full bladder as it will generally fill during the course of administration of oral contrast. However, you are required not to pass urine during this examination. KUB and lower abdomen examinations There is no need of fasting for these examinations but full bladder is a requirement. Further, avoid examination immediately after taking food. A gap of 2 hrs is advisable whenever contrast is to be administered.

Head examinations

Normally no preparation is required for these examinations. But in case of children and those with neurological problems, may need to be sedated/anaesthetized as good examination can not be done, if patient is moving his/her head.

Allergy to drugs and contrast media

Though we use non-ionic contrast media which has very few reactions, however, a severe reaction is a possibility. If you are allergic to any drug or contrast media, you must tell us. This may require modification and different planning for examination.

Your Creatinine levels should be known.

If you are diabetic, then the history of the drugs you arer taking should be known
