The Surgical centre provides several ultrasound diagnostic services. The scans that are performed most often are those of the abdomen, the breasts, the thyroid, the prostate and the veins of the legs. Other ultrasound examinations can be performed upon agreement with the doctor.
Scans of the abdomen are conducted on an empty stomach: patients are advised not to eat six hours prior to the examination. Two hours before the examination, they should drink 0.3 l (10 oz) of water and keep a full bladder.
