Preparing for abdominal ultrasound exam:
1. 2 - 3 days before the scan, in order to get rid of gas that could distort the ultrasound, take Espumisan, Simeticone or similar effect medication should be taken (dosage: 2 capsules 3 times a day)
2. 24 hours before the scan it is important to follow a light diet and avoid food causing bloating (beans, sauerkraut, garlic, fizzy drinks etc.)
3. On the day of the scan, for approximately 6 hours before the ultrasound, you should refrain from eating.
4. Furthermore, for the scan your bladder should be full, therefore it is advised to drink a lot of still water prior to the examination.
