Ultrasound NYC: Uncountable Reasons for an Aorta Aneurism Screening

POSTED ON MONDAY, MAY 07, 2012 AT 9:49 AM  by Dr. Marc Liebeskind

Your heart counts approximately 70 to 75 beats per minute for 1440 minutes per day, every day of your life without conscious thought, not including the extra beats it gives you to supply your muscles with oxygen-rich blood to strengthen your body and aid in recovery during exercise. Show a little of the love that your heart shows you every minute of your life by receiving an ultrasound in New York for an aorta aneurism screening at Park Avenue Radiologists. An ultrasound in NY can detect if your aorta is enlarged in the abdomen. Early detection of aorta enlargement can prevent your aorta from bursting, potentially saving your life.

Park Avenue Radiologists offer ultrasound in New York City for aorta aneurism screening in the hopes of detecting any clogged, plague-fill arteries or an enlarged aorta. If your aorta is 5 centimeters in diameter, further monitoring may be necessary to prevent a rupture. An abdominal ultrasound in NYC can also detect if your aneurysm is growing. Large aneurysms may require yearly or biyearly ultrasounds while smaller aneurysms may only need an ultrasound every 2 to 3 years. Regular screenings will keep you informed of your aneurysm’s progress and equip you with the knowledge to take further medical action if necessary. Ultrasounds in New York are painless and non-invasive. They do not involve radiation, but patients will be required to fast 6 hours prior to the examination. By dedicating only 30 to 45 minutes out of your day, you can ensure the health and continued beat of your heart. The knowledge about your aorta and cardiac health that abdominal ultrasounds in NY provides is essential to maintaining a long, healthy life.
