In brief: Yep

You'll need to fast for eight to 12 hours before your abdominal ultrasound.
Food and liquids in your stomach and urine in your bladder can make it difficult for the ultrasound technician to get a clear picture of your aorta. Please follow your prep instructions provided by the Radiology facility where your test will be performed.
