Before an Abdominal Ultrasound
DO NOT EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING after midnight the night before the procedure unless instructed otherwise by your doctor.
Before a Renal (kidney) Ultrasound

During the Ultrasound
You will be asked to wear a hospital gown. A jelly-like substance will be applied directly to the skin surface and a series of pictures will be taken of the body part being examined. This gel wipes off easily and will not stain your clothing.
After the Ultrasound
The radiologist will send the ultrasound report to your physician. The results will be given to you by your physician.
