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

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

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

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

ESR level 36 age 63 all blood test reports normal, ultrasound of abdomen, X-ray chest and ECG normal but prostrate 25 gms but no abnormality, Possibl?

Non specific ESR: Mild increased ESR is common and non specific - it can be caused by inflammation or infection of any kind, by anemia, by pregnancy, and by certain drugs (EG, Dextran, methyldopa, oral contraceptives, penicillamine, procainamide, theophylline, and vitamin A). This test is more useful as a marker that indicates improvement or worsening of a previously diagnosed condition. ...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?

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

At my last ultrasound, my baby's head measured 33cm, belly was 34cm, and femur was 7.9cm. How much does my baby weigh? I was 37 1/2 weeks at the time.

At my last ultrasound, my baby's head measured 33cm, belly was 34cm, and femur was 7.9cm. How much does my baby weigh? I was 37 1/2 weeks at the time.

Ask your doctor: The ultrasound machine will have generated an estimated fetal weight based on these measurements. Your doctor should have that report. That said, this is typically quite inaccurate as it is only within +/- a pound. So a "6 pd" baby on ultrasound can weigh anywhere from 5-7 pounds at birth! ...Read more
