Uterus Ultrasound - Pelvic Scan for Pregnancy - Pelvic Ultrasound vs transvaginal ultrasoundWhen we think ultrasound, most of us think looking inside a uterus to peek at a growing baby thing. But did you know the uterus is not the only gut that gets scanned by ultrasound technology? It's true! Snap on your surgical gloves and lube up your ultrasound transducer, cause we are gonna look at some guts!

Thyroid Ultrasound - preparation -cpt - thyroid prep

If you've ever experience puzzling thyroid problems, you may have gotten a thyroid ultrasound! This little gland can wreak all kinds of havoc when it doesn't want to behave, or worse, is cancerous. Here is our thyroid pillow, pictured above, ready for her close-up.

Breast ultrasound images

Another real fun one? Your breasts may need extra diagnostic imaging following a mammogram! If you have dense breast tissue and that wretched mammogram machine (seriously, can't we find a more humane way to look inside our boobs? We don't diagnose testicles this way...Calling all medical engineers! ) didn't squash your boobs thin enough to look inside, you may need an ultrasound to check for breast cancer. Our breast pillow, above, is so happy to be outta that mammogram / panini press/ machine, she doesn't mind that ultrasound one bit!

Cervical ultrasound images

Of course the uterus is not the only reproductive organ needing a closer look. The cervix may also need extra medical imaging for diagnostic purposes. Nobody loves a vaginal ultrasound transducer, but it just may safe your life. Above, our cervix pillow takes a look at her pretty pictures. Let's also raise a glass to the ultrasound tech, a medical hero who never gets any love or recognition, yet helps you magically look inside your body!

Maybe your spleen went sayonara or your knee got replaced with a robot one? And you're the type who wants to celebrate those missing body parts with a tee, right?

Perhaps you are half cyborg at this point. Perhaps you unwillingly "donated" your kidney or part of your colon. Maybe 25% of your organs are missing, but no matter -- you're still here! Because you are so tough, they may take your uterus, your appendix, your tonsils AND your thyroid but they can't take your spirit.

Go ahead and take my ovaries -- I double-dog dare you! First of all, I can live without them, second of all, I'll help you toss them into the incinerator!

Maybe your brain wasn't burning with the question, "What's new with guts at Comic Con this year?" but we're gonna share anyway. Some more BIG GUTS will debut at Comic Con, specifically the new Colossal Kidney, Big Brain, Immense Intestine and Prodigious Pancreas, all pictured here. These are so fun and fluffy and fabulous, we cannot wait to share them with our favorite folks at the world's largest geek convention (being geeks ourselves, we're allowed to say that). If that's not enough, we'll also have our brand new plush appendix and plush thyroid, seen below, so please stop by our booth, #932! We'll also have our usual array of tees, pins, posters and other fun stuff. And for those of you who can't make it, don't worry, these guys are on now for sale on our website! And there's still a handful of the lifesize kidneys, pancreases and intestines left if you want 'em.
