Dedicated to treating liver disease, including cancer and cysts, the specialists at The Melissa L. Posner Institute for Digestive Health and Liver Disease offer on-site abdominal ultrasound to develop a comprehensive diagnosis.
An abdominal ultrasound, also known as sonography, is a non-invasive scan of the abdominal cavity and its organs. Mercy specialists use abdominal ultrasound, often in conjunction with FibroScan, to diagnose liver disease such as liver cancer and cysts.
During an abdominal ultrasound, sound waves are sent through a transducer, a wand that is applied to the abdominal area, to create and deliver images of the liver and surrounding tissue. This allows specialists to look at the liver without anesthesia, needles or pain.
A specialist may recommend an abdominal ultrasound if a patient is experiencing unexplained pain or if there is evidence of liver disease, such as liver cancer or cysts. Additionally, a specialist may recommend a FibroScan is there is evidence of liver scarring.
