Preparation means giving up fatty and gas-forming products 1-3 days before the procedure. It is better to do an ultrasound of the spleen on an empty stomach, so it is worth making an appointment in the morning. If this is not possible, you can have a light meal 5-6 hours before the visit to the Clinic.
The patient needs to remove the upper part of his body from his clothes and lie on the couch. The doctor applies a conductive gel to the projection area of ​​the spleen, then carefully examines the organ using an external sensor. The patient lies on his back, sometimes he is asked to lie on his side. The sonologist registers all information in the protocol, fixes any deviations from the norm, and then draws up a conclusion. A full transcript with the establishment of the diagnosis is made by the attending physician.
You can make an ultrasound of the spleen at a reasonable price at the Spine Clinic of Dr. Razumovsky in St. Petersburg.
