Abdominal Aorta Duplex

WHAT IS IT?

An Abdominal Aorta Duplex uses sound waves to check the circulation to the abdomen. The test is noninvasive, which means no needles, catheters, or dyes are used. Ultrasound is used to created a picture of the shape of tissues and organs inside your body. The walls of blood vessels, including any deposits or narrowing, can also be seen.

Gel is placed on the skin over the area to be studied. An instrument, called a transducer, is placed on your skin. Sound waves are transmitted from the transducer. The sound waves reflect off the tissues and organs to created a picture that can be seen on a screen. Blood flow through the blood vessels can be heard as the test is being completed.

Patient Instructions:

  1. Allow 1 hour for the test.
  2. Wear two-piece clothing.
  3. Take all your regular medications, unless otherwise instructed by your physician.
  4. Do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before the test.
  5. Your physician will be notified of the results.
