Lots of things: Ultrasound is a good way to image the liver for problems without using x-rays. Things that ultrasound picks up include gall bladder problems, masses in the liver, fluid around the liver, and problems with blood flow. It is most commonly used for problems with the gall bladder and biliary tree.
