In brief: Ultrasound and fluid

The goal for a kidney ultrasoun is to have the bladder full and then do a post voiding image.
Does not matter what fluid you use. Would avoid caffeine or alcohol because of the diuretic effect since you may be holding your urine until the appropriate time of the test.
