An X-ray examination of the sacro-lumbar spine performed on an out-patient basis requires adequate preparation from patients.

One day before the examination:

  • light diet, excluding vegetables, fruit and dark bread
  • do not drink carbonated beverages
  • Espumisan 3 x 2 capsules 

On the day of the examination:

  • empty your bowels
  • be on an empty stomach or at least 6 hours after a meal
  • do not smoke
  • Important! Each woman of childbearing potential should be X-rayed in the first twelve days of a cycle (unless the doctor decides otherwise) to exclude the risk of complications during the potential pregnancy.
