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.
