abdominal ultrasound    (ab-DAH-mih-nul UL-truh-sownd) is a procedure used to examine the organs in the abdomen.

Procedure

An ultrasound transducer (probe) is pressed firmly against the skin of the abdomen. High-energy sound waves from the transducer bounce off tissues and create echoes. The echoes are sent to a computer, which makes a picture called a sonogram.

Other names

Also called transabdominal ultrasound.
