Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: ultrasound of abdomen shows bull's eye?

What is the definition or description of: ultrasound of abdomen shows bull's eye?

Bull's eye by US: Ultrasound images can be very helpful to clinicians: they are pretty easy to obtain, not too expensive, very safe for patients and often lead to diagnosis. When the bowel telescopes on itself, aka intussuseption, it causes pain and obstruction and quickly becomes an emergency. With the walls of the bowel telescoped or folded onto themselves it looks like a target or bull's eye on ultrasound. ...Read more

I was never told I had scoliosis as a kid or teenager; but, found out last year I have moderate levoscoliosis. I've had back pain for 3 Mos. (had ultrasound of abdomen-all normal). Could scoliosis be causing the pain & why would I have scoliosis now?

Can cause pain : It might be simplistic to say you had scoliosis when you were younger and no one looked. Still I have seen over the years patients who developed scoliosis as they aged without reason behind it. Some develop because of spinal lesions. It is always a good idea to talk to your doctor and decide if more tests are needed ...Read more

How is ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis done?am i asked to take my clothes off?i'm 17 and will feel discomfort naked

How is ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis done?am i asked to take my clothes off?i'm 17 and will feel discomfort naked

You will probably: need to change into a hospital gown. Ultrasound requires the use of gel on the skin, and you don't want that getting all over your clothes.Also,your clothing may hinder the technologist from being able to freely evaluate your abdomen. Only the area being scanned should be exposed.If the pelvic is transvaginal(it may not be), they will use a gel covered cylindrical probe inserted into the vagina. ...Read more

Mri abd prob focal modular hyperplasia & cyst (small) on liver. If md orders ultrasound of abdomen, what will it show that the MRI didn't is us needed

See below: Us may be used to confirm the cyst if the MRI was not performed with contrast. Us does not help further characterize the focal nodular hyperplasia, although it can be used for future follow up. It may also be possible that biopsy of the "probable" focal nodular hyperplasia was recommended and us is done to see if this nodule can be seen on us for us-guided biopsy. ...Read more

Ultrasound of abdomen showed 1.2cm dark spot in the right lobe of liver. CT scan done without contrast, inconclusive. Do I need a CT with contrast?

It depends: what kind of "dark spot" it is. If it is a benign cyst, nothing more may need to be done. If it is indeterminate, you may need a contrast enhanced ct or mri for further evaluation. ...Read more

It : It is important to know if you still have your ovaries, which sometimes are taken out or sometimes are left in with a hysterectomy. I am glad to know though that your ultrasound and ct scan were normal. Be sure you are using plenty of lubrication during intercourse. Be sure you have had a complete pelvic exam and that your pap smear is up to date. If your symptoms persist please see your gynecologist for another evaluation. ...Read more

Im 22 years old, and have a unilateral right varicocele. Ultrasound of abdomen showed no kidney anomalies. Should I pursue a specialist given my age?

Im 22 years old, and have a unilateral right varicocele. Ultrasound of abdomen showed no kidney anomalies. Should I pursue a specialist given my age?

Right varicocele : Varicocele is usually on the left side and not in the right. Isolated right varicocele requires further investigation. I recommend you see a urologist for proper exam. US is a good screening tool, but CT of abdomen and pelvis might be indicated to rule out intra abdominal pathology. ...Read more

Upper Stomach cramps for 4 days now I have a cold could this be why I am having stomach cramps ultrasound of abdomen was normal?

Could be viral: Stomach cramps can be associated with many things, including viral illnesses of the gastrointestinal tract. This pain is typically cramping, intermittent and around the naval. It is often worse with eating, but you should continue to drink to stay hydrated. The ultrasound likely ruled out any issue with the gallbladder, pancreas or spleen, but if the pain persists you should see your Dr again. ...Read more

Would an ultrasound of abdomen show hernia? If you're testicles hang very low-stomach protrudes out when empty not overweight, signs of what? Age 23

Would an ultrasound of abdomen show hernia? If you're testicles hang very low-stomach protrudes out when empty not overweight, signs of what? Age 23

Physical Exam Best: A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall through which the inner layer of the abdominal cavity stretches thru, creating a sac. The problem with ultrasounds (or even ct scans) is that they are usually done laying down; gravity and relaxation of the abdominal wall may allow the hernia to reduce and be missed. The best exam is done standing, with and without exertion. I recommend you see a surgeon. ...Read more
