what is an Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound?
A noninvasive cardiac imaging procedure, an abdominal aortic ultrasound can detect and diagnose various heart and vascular conditions, including blood clots, narrowed vessels, and an aortic aneurysm, which occurs when the aorta widens and the vessel walls weaken, creating an aneurysm that can rupture and lead to a life-threatening event. The ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to display the aorta, the main blood vessel leading away from the heart. Our cardiac testing team at Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology utilizes the latest technology to accurately diagnose any irregularities and introduce treatment options, and we do it on-site for your convenience. Contact our office in West Bridgewater, MA to learn more about this ultrasound scan.
What to Expect from an Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound
A typical ultrasound takes about 30 minutes to complete. The scan begins with you lying on your back on an examination table. A small amount of gel is applied to your abdomen while a handheld transducer will glide over your abdomen to create images of your vessels inside. After the abdominal ultrasound, you can return to your usual routine. Dr. Terzian will discuss your test results later and recommend more screenings or create a customized treatment plan for your condition. If a small aneurysm is detected, our team may recommend frequent screenings to monitor any growth. A large aneurysm will require a referral to a vascular surgeon for repair.
