Abdominal Ultrasound

Abdominal ultrasound is used to evaluate the liver, spleen, kidneys, pancreas, aorta and gallbladder. The exam is painless and is generally completed within 30 minutes. Ultrasound can sometimes identify abnormalities not visible by other imaging methods and can compliment other imaging techniques such as Computed Tomography (C.T.).

The types of abnormalities detectable by abdominal ultrasound include:

  • Masses arising in and around the examined organs.
  • Kidney stones and gall bladder stones.
  • Signs of infection, inflammation and abscess formation.
  • Aneurysms (enlargement of the major arteries).
  • Abnormal fluid collections.
