Abdominal (Hernia) Ultrasound
What is an Abdominal (Hernia) Ultrasound?
Many times your physician can diagnose a hernia during a physical exam and no other tests are needed to make the diagnosis. Other times, there may be symptoms of a hernia, but no obvious protrusion is detected during a routine exam. In this case, a targeted or limited Abdominal Ultrasound may be ordered. This Abdominal Ultrasound is a simple, noninvasive test that uses sound waves to create real-time images of the location of your pain and/or the locations most commonly associated with hernia.
