The Ultrasound Scan Procedure
To prepare for this scan, we ask you to drink 1.5 pints of water about 1 hour before the appointment and not to empty your bladder until after the scan. This is because the fluid provides a contrast for the baby scan process and can improve the quality of the images.
Ultrasound is safe, non-invasive and does not use ionizing radiation. During the ultrasound scan, a warm water-based gel is rubbed on the area to be examined and an ultrasound probe is gently moved around to obtain images. The ultrasound scan has no known risks and is usually pain free. When the scan is completed the gel can be wiped off easily using tissue.
