A test ofLimited val: Ultrasound is commonly used to screen for any tumors in the abdoemn and in the liver. But it has its limitations as it does not show any finer details of your stomach...So inot a good test for ulcers. We have to use 2 or 3 different tests, depending on the nature of the suspected problem. This may include an endoscopy to check inside of the stomach and a ct scan which can check each of the organs.
