It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more

I came home from my 20 week rob anatomy ultrasound today, I brought home a cd with all of my pictures on it and stumbled across the preliminary report. It says I have anterior low lying placenta, what is this and should I schedule to see my doctor sooner

I came home from my 20 week rob anatomy ultrasound today, I brought home a cd with all of my pictures on it and stumbled across the preliminary report. It says I have anterior low lying placenta, what is this and should I schedule to see my doctor sooner

Relax!: Low-lying placenta at 20 weeks has >80% chance of moving out of the way as the pregnancy advances and the growing uterus expands higher up in your abdomen (placental migration). You do need another sonogram at 28 weeks and some instructions until then: avoid Aspirin and all nsaids (e.g. Motrin, advil, aleve) and only take regular tylenol for aches/pains; nothing per vaginam; no heavy lifting/sex. ...Read more

CT SCAN of abdomen says,the dome of the liver is partially excluded.The liver is normal in size and attenuation,on noncontrast image.what does it mean?

Didn't get to see it: "Excluded" means it wasn't in the pictures. Somehow, the tech or someone made a mistake and didn't get enough pictures. The abdomen starts at the diaphragm (which covers the top, or dome, of the liver on the right side). A CT of the abdomen should go from the diaphragm through the pelvis. However, in your case they started lower down - missing the top (or dome) of the liver. ...Read more
