Disclaimer

will a ct scan show gallstones/ other gall bladder problems as well as stomach ulcers? what about a urine and blood test?

Dr. Ryan Taylor

Yes and no: Ct is fairly good at evaluating the gallbladder for stones or infection/inflammation. It is poor at evaluating the stomach for ulcers. This typically requires an upper endoscopy.
