Overview

Ultrasound may be helpful in the diagnosis of appendix tumors, appendix mucocele, and appendicitis as the most prevalent complication of appendiceal cancers. There are no echocardiography findings associated with appendix cancer. However, an echocardiography may be helpful in the diagnosis of complications of carcinoid tumor. If a patient develop carcinoid syndrome, transthoracic echocardiography is the method of choice in the diagnosis and follow-up of carcinoid heart disease.
