How to prepare for a kidney ultrasound?

Ultrasound of the kidneys today is considered the most informative method of research. It is prescribed both for suspected kidney disease and for a routine examination, since it shows everything as accurately and quickly as possible.

But not everyone knows how to prepare for an ultrasound of the kidneys. In principle, to prepare for this procedure, no special actions are required: no need to follow a diet, drink medicines, do an enema. You can come to the ultrasound at any time convenient for you. Renal ultrasound is prescribed even for pregnant women if they suspect kidney or bladder disease.

True, there is one nuance. If you have an ultrasound of your bladder with kidney ultrasound, which happens very often, since these organs are closely connected with each other, then you should know that you need to do it after drinking a couple of glasses of liquid to fill your bladder. The thing is that the empty bladder is poorly visible, so it must be filled.

What you need to take with you:

  • Card with analyzes and studies, records of specialists.
  • A diaper or sheet on which you could lie.
  • Towel to erase the remnants of the gel after ultrasound.

Thus, no special procedures are needed for preparation, since it is not particularly necessary to prepare for an ultrasound scan of the kidneys. And if you have problems with these bodies, then you can do research at any time.
