Any previous ultrasound examinations, x-rays, CT scans or MRIs

Allergies we should be informed about
If you are allergic to any antiseptics or medical products, please bring the name of the product and tell the sonographer before your examination so that we can use alternative products.
What to wear to an appointment
Please wear any clothes that you feel comfortable in.
Preparation for your appointment
For trans-abdominal examinations it is useful to have a comfortably full bladder. You do not need to be overfull, so please empty your bladder if it is becoming uncomfortable.
For trans-vaginal examinations you will be more comfortable with an empty bladder. All our scanning rooms have en-suite bathrooms so you can easily go to the toilet. No special preparation is necessary except for removing a tampon if you are using one. Pessaries do not need to be removed. You don’t need to wash or shave in any special way.
Please don’t feel embarrassed. All of the sonographers in the practice are female and we always keep you completely covered during the examination. If you need them, we have spare pads and tampons in the bathrooms for your convenience.
Please let us know if you feel stressed
If you have previously had a stressful experience at an ultrasound examination, please discuss it with your sonographer before the examination, or ask your doctor to call one of our specialists at Ultrasound Care. We will then be able to address your concerns and make sure you have a better experience this time.
