DRHC has a state-of-the art ultrasound machine with superior image quality. It is connected to the PACS system and images are assessed by the Radiologist. There are two technologists who do abdominal, pelvic, obstetrical, venous, and small part ultrasound scans.
How do I prepare for an ultrasound?
- Do not eat for 12 hours prior to exam. Water is allowed, no candy or gum. Medication may be taken with a small amount of water as long as the medication does not upset an empty stomach.
