How to prepare
- Don’t eat or drink after midnight the night before if your ultrasound is in the morning.
- Don’t eat or drink after 7 am if your ultrasound is in the afternoon. Have a light, fat-free breakfast. For example, you can have dry toast and a glass of orange juice.
- If you are diabetic, you can have 1 piece of dry toast and 1 glass of juice before your morning ultrasound.
- If your ultrasound is for your abdomen and your pelvis, try not to go to the washroom for 2 hours before your test.
