Visceral Evaluation — Renal, Mesenteric, or Portal

What is a visceral exam?
The visceral arteries and veins carry blood to and from the organs in the abdomen. When the vessels supplying blood to the kidneys – the renal arteries — become blocked, patients can experience uncontrollable hypertension. When the vessels supplying the bowel and intestines — the mesenteric and celiac arteries — become blocked the patient may experience pain following eating, fear of food, and/or significant weight loss. During the exam, the technologist will place the probe on the patient's belly and side, while looking at the organs, arteries, and veins. The technologist will look for blockages in the arteries due to plaque or other conditions that could block the blood flow.
