PREPARATION FOR OB AND GYN EXAMS
We ask that you drink an 8 oz. glass of any liquid one hour prior to your visit. Your exam may be done transabdominal , transvaginal, or both. This will be determined by the Sonographer when you arrive. A full bladder is required for transabdominal imaging, and an empty bladder is required for the transvaginal exam. IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO BE OVER-FULL.
