* Pregnancy Mass Effect (FAM)
****When mineralized fetal skeletons are present, pregnancy will lead to displacement of abdominal organs and limited visibility within the abdomen. Due to these changes, specific test results may not appear in your SignalRAY report. If there is concern for an abdominal mass or other pathology, consider additional imaging such as ultrasound.
