A 38-year-old male asked:

Is a clean ultrasound of pancrease (pancrelipase) and negative enzyme test a good way of telling if the pancrease (pancrelipase) is ok?

Pancreas: Ultrasound is not a best modality to visualize pancreas. It is not recommended to do scans routines.. If amylase and lipase are ok , means no inflammation of pancreas.
