Abdominal pain: Abdominal ultrasound gives anatomic detail of the solid organs of the abdomen such as liver, spleen pancreas and kidneys. Ultrasound is limited in evaluation of the large and small intestines. Further discussion with your doctor is necessary to determine the best next step such as ct scan or endoscopy.
