Preparation/instructions

    When you were referred by your physician for a radiological exam, you may have been told about certain instructions to be done prior to the exam, or when you were scheduling your appointment, the scheduler should have informed you about the preparations that should be done prior to your exam. If you did not or if you want a recheck, you can refer to the information listed below.

    Keep in mind that you may have been given some additional or different instructions, based on your own particular circumstances. If you have any questions, please call  our hotline 16171 or (202) 3336-3310 (Mohandeseen), (202) 2417 5556 (Heliopolis) or (202) 2528 4888 (Maadi) to speak with a radiologist if you have any questions. It is best to call between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m., Saturday through Thursday.

Instructions

An enema must be taken one to four hours prior to the examination. If you require a PSA blood test, please arrange to have it drawn prior to your ultrasound examination on another day.

The procedure

This examination takes approximately 15-20 minutes.

You will be asked to change into a gown and provide us with a brief history.

You will then be placed on a stretcher and asked to lay on your left side. A plastic device called a transducer which has been specifically designed for this particular study, will be placed into your rectum. These transducers are sterilized between patients and covered with a non-latex sheath during the examination. Many patients find this study similar to the digital rectal examination performed in their physician's office.
