Diagnostic Testing

Mesenteric Arterial

Duplex ultrasound is used to assess the main mesenteric (abdominal) arteries for significant obstruction in at least two of the three vessels. 

Indications for this exam:  Extreme cramping of the abdomen shortly after a meal.  If this condition exists, cramping would be a constant symptom after eating.  Other causes may exist which could also cause this type of cramping.  Ultrasound is an excellent tool to non-invasively assess these arteries.
