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

Had a UTI a month ago, that went away however.. Still have frequency. Saw urologist, did urine culture, ultrasound said everything looks fine.

Use nsaids and see md if not better in 3-4 days. ...Read more

It's like when U see a great artist or athlete; when they hv IT U NO ...Read more
