We encourage prevention – ultrasound is a short and painless imaging test that can protect against the consequences of downplaying small problems of abnormal functioning of the urinary tract, finally becoming serious ailments.
How is the urological ultrasound performed? – described by prof. Piotr Radziszewski and doctor Agnieszka Chomicz
The patient should be properly prepared for the ultrasound, 2 days before the test it is recommended to give up meals that are hard to digest and bloating, and chewing gum should be discontinued on the day of examination. One hour before the ultrasound is extremely important to fill the bladder by drinking about 1.5 l of still water. All previous research results and a list of currently and previously taken medicines should be brought to the visit.
Ultrasound examination in urology involves viewing with a gel lubricated handheld images of the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra and prostate gland. Patient is usually in supine position during the examination, but a doctor could request a change of the position at any time in order to better visualize the examined organ.
