USG WHOLE ABDOMEN + TVS
A combined USG (Ultrasound) Whole Abdomen and TVS (Transvaginal Sonography) examination is a comprehensive imaging procedure that evaluates the organs and structures within the entire abdominal region and also includes a transvaginal ultrasound examination for imaging the pelvic organs.
Duration : 15 min to 20 min
Preparation for a USG Whole Abdomen + TVS examination typically involves the following steps:
- Fasting: You will usually be required to fast for a specific period before the examination. This typically involves refraining from eating anything for 4 hours for a certain duration. Fasting helps ensure a clear visualization of the abdominal organs and reduces the risk of interference from food in the stomach. Your healthcare provider will provide you with specific fasting instructions, including the duration of the fast.
- Medications: Inform your healthcare provider about any medications you are currently taking. Some medications may need to be adjusted or temporarily discontinued before the examination. Your healthcare provider will provide guidance on medication management based on your individual case.
- Hydration: In some cases, you may be instructed to drink a specific amount of water before the examination to have a full bladder. A full bladder can aid in visualizing the pelvic organs during the transvaginal ultrasound. Follow any specific hydration instructions provided by your healthcare provider.
- Empty Bladder: For the transvaginal ultrasound portion of the examination, you may be asked to empty your bladder before the procedure. Your healthcare provider will provide specific instructions on when to empty the bladder.
- Previous Reports: If you have any previous ultrasound or medical reports related to your abdomen or pelvis, bring them along to provide a complete medical history and assist in the interpretation of the current ultrasound findings.
