Abdominal, Ovarian (Pelvic), Thyroid
ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSM ULTRASOUND
The abdominal aorta is our main blood vessel, originating in the heart and supplying blood to our bodies. Ultrasound can reveal if the vessel wall has thinned or expanded, something we can’t see or feel, which increases the chance of rupture. The most common place this happens is in the abdominal region.
Your thyroid, a gland in the front of the neck, produces hormones that controls metabolism. While an over or underactive thyroid may cause problems you can feel, a tumor can remain unnoticed but can be seen on Ultrasound.
Pelvic ultrasound is used to examine the uterus and ovaries and can help determine the causes of pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, or other menstrual problems.
It can identify palpable masses such as ovarian cysts and uterine fibroid growths, as well as other as ovarian or uterine cancers. In addition, ultrasound is often used during pregnancy to monitor the health and development of the embryo or fetus.
