It is not possible to investigate the lung, stomach, intestines and skeleton with an ultrasound investigation.

If the ultrasound is used to investigate your abdominal of pelvic region (liver, pancreas, kidneys, gall-bladder, spleen, urinary bladder, uterus, prostate), you need to prepare in advance (in infants and young children, the preparation does not apply).

Before the investigation you may not eat at least 4 hours. This restriction is necessary for several reasons:

  • A full stomach conceals the pancreas;
  • The gall bladder empties after eating and cannot be assessed;
  • Digestion of food and carbonated beverages produces intestinal gases that interfere the investigation;
  • The urinary bladder must be full. A full bladder is positioned higher and thus enables the doctor a more accurate overview of the bladder, uterus and prostate. Therefore drink 1-2 hours before the investigation at least 2 glasses of water and do not empty the bladder before the end of the scan. After the scan you can use the bathroom immediately.

Take the daily medications prescribed to you by your doctor as per the treatment plan.

The service is free of charge for insured persons. In the absence of health insurance, we offer paid ultrasound scans, see the price list.
