Finnish term or phrase: US ("US tavalliset")
Adventures in cryptic medical abbreviations, part 20000:

"
Rinnat kyhmyttömät l.a.; US tavalliset, nivusalue normaali.
"

Thanks to previous queries, I'm pretty sure that "l.a." means "on both sides".

But "US"?????????

Perhaps the answer should be obvious, but I've run through the list of every Finnish body-part term I can think of, and have turned up no clear matches for "US".

Thanks

Explanation:
US seems to be abbreviation for "ulkosynnyttimet". Here's an old article on medical abbreviations, which includes this as well: https://www.diva-portal.org/smash/get/diva2:1176753/FULLTEXT...
