Would an abdominal CT scan with contrast and a ultra sound rule out something bad with the pancreas and liver and stomach? Has pain and nausea

In brief: Not always

Hi. "Something bad with the pancreas and liver and stomach" is a very broad category.
CT and U/S detect many masses, i.e. anatomical abnormalities. Some anatomical abnormalities would NOT be caught, and many metabolic, inflammatory, and infectious abnormalities would be missed. So you probably don't have liver, stomach, or pancreatic cancer, gallstones, or other gross anatomical abnormalities.
