Is a type of imaging test. It is used to look at organs in the abdomen, including the liver, gallbladder, speen, pancreas, and kidneys. The blood vessels that lead to some of these organs, such as the inferior vena cava and aorta, can also be examined with ultrasound.
GVM International uses state-of-the-art x-ray equipment for better imaging, so examinations are of high-quality, informative, quick and painless.
Before having the x-ray, tell the provider the following:
The test is done in a hospital radiology department. Or it may done in the health care provider's office by an x-ray technologist.
You lie on your back on the x-ray table. The x-ray machine is positioned over your abdominal area. You hold your breath as the picture is taken so that the picture will not be blurry. You may be asked to change position to the side or to stand up for additional pictures.
Men will have a lead shield placed over the testes to protect against the radiation.
