Aorta Ultrasound is a diagnostic procedure that employs high-frequency sound waves to capture detailed images of the aorta – the main artery carrying blood away from the heart. This safe and painless technique allows our expert cardiologists to assess the structure, size, and blood flow within the aorta. By visualizing these aspects, we can identify potential abnormalities or conditions affecting your cardiovascular system.

Indications for Aorta Ultrasound

Patients experiencing symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, or high blood pressure may be recommended for Aorta Ultrasound. Additionally, individuals with a family history of cardiovascular diseases or those with specific risk factors may benefit from this preventive examination. Aorta Ultrasound is a proactive step towards identifying issues before they become critical.

The Aorta Ultrasound Process

Before the procedure, patients are advised to wear comfortable clothing and may need to fast for a few hours. Once prepared, a specialized gel is applied to the skin over the aorta area, and a transducer is gently moved to capture images. The procedure is painless and usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes. After the examination, patients can resume their normal activities immediately.

Aorta Ultrasound offers numerous benefits, including early detection of cardiovascular issues.
