Please tell me, could you find bowel cancer from an abdominal ultrasound when looking for gallstones?

In brief: No

An ultrasound is a targeted exam only looking at the liver and gallbladder when looking for gallstones.
Sometimes the kidneys and spleen are evaluated during that time also. Us is not a good exam to look for bowel abnormalities.
