ABDOMINAL AORTIC IMAGING:
This is an ultrasound exam of the aorta (the large artery in your stomach) to look for a weakened or bulging area of the vessel. This is called an aneurysm. The larger the aneurysm, the higher your risk of rupture.

This test is done to determine the percentage of blood flow getting to your legs/feet. Blockage in these arteries decreases that percentage and is called Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). PAD can lead to leg pain when walking, or if gone untreated, can result in loss of limb.
This is an ultrasound exam done before and/or after surgery to identify any problems with blood flow in your arteries.
For more information on Arterial Disease see PAD Management
