Stomach Ultrasound

Was anyone given a stomach/abdomen ultrasound to help diagnose their stomach problems? I'm just so frustrated trying to get into see a GI specialist and primary care wants me to get an ultrasound. Would they be able to see an ulcer from that type of film?

Re: Stomach Ultrasound

I had to have a stomach ultrasound. Also a small bowel follow through. They made me drink barium and then x-rayed me. You could see the reflux happening right on their screen! I think it's just something you have to do to satisfy insurance. I do believe they will be able to see an ulcer with that test though if you have one. Good Luck!

Re: Stomach Ultrasound

Thaks for your reply. As it turned out my doctor wanted the ultrasound to be able to see if I was having a problem with my liver, pancreas, or gall bladder but the blood tests came back negative so I didn't have the ultrasound.
