Since the diagnostics is quite simple and safe, we recommend having a preventive ultrasound examination once a year to diagnose changes timely and prevent further disease development.

Preparation for the abdomen ultrasound examination requires no food for at least 4-6 hours before the examination. It is desirable that you have no intake of food that causes flatuses (kidney beans, peas, green beans, …), food such as cereals, fruit and vegetables that is high in fibers.
