Service Description

How to prepare for a prostate ultrasound ? You don’t need to do much to prepare for a prostate ultrasound. It’s an outpatient procedure that usually takes less than an hour. Your doctor may refer you to a hospital or clinic that has the proper ultrasound equipment for this test. You may also need to sign a consent form before the test. Some possible instructions that your doctor might give you before the test include: ● Don’t eat for a few hours before the test. ● Take a laxative or enema to help clear out your intestines a few hours before the test. ● Stop taking any medications that can thin your blood, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or aspirin, about a week before the procedure. This is usually recommended if your doctor plans to take a biopsy of your prostate. ● Don’t wear any jewelry or tight clothes to the clinic on the day of the procedure. ● Take any medications recommended to help you relax during the procedure. Your doctor may recommend a sedative, such as lorazepam (Ativan). ● Make sure someone’s available to take you home in case your doctor gives you a sedative.
