Re: [IP] Renal ultrasound

I am having a renal ultrasound for Microalbuminaria. I called the
Radio;Radiology lab twice and also it states on the form they gave me to Fast
after mid night, no food or liquid until after ultrasound.
I will call early Tuesday; ultrasound is at 8am Tuesday. I just need to
understand what they are going to do and why.

  I am an ultrasound tech and our prep doesn't require fasting!  Are you
  having a renal doppler study or just a renal study?  Do you have high blood
  pressure?  Even still, you don't have to fast at our hospital for either of
  those studies.  You are required however to drink to drink a couple glasses
  of water ahead of time.  I would call back to the doctors and ask.  People
  are given the wrong prep sometimes and I think they did this time with you.
