Ultrasounds aren’t just for expecting mothers. Abdominal ultrasounds provide an excellent way for doctors to see inside the body and assess your health without the need for surgery.
An ultrasound produces images of your organs in either 2D or 3D, allowing your doctor to identify any health concerns and help you develop a treatment plan. Patients with an increased risk for abdominal cancer, appendicitis, or related health concerns may benefit from periodic ultrasounds to monitor their condition. Talk to your doctor about adding ultrasound appointments to your professional health care regimen.
