Abdominal ultrasounds are effective in accessing the liver, spleen, pancreas, aorta, gall bladder, bile ducts, kidneys, and spleen.

Your health professional may request this test to investigate abdominal pain or other abdominal symptoms.  

During the abdominal ultrasound, warm gel is applied to your abdomen before the imaging technician places the probe on the abdominal surface and applies gentle pressure to obtain the accurate and clear images.
