An abdominal ultrasound scan serves to image the upper abdominal organs. The most common reason for referral for this procedure is upper abdominal pain, though there are many other reasons why your doctor can refer you for this. It is a quick, non-invasive way of confirming or excluding certain pathology in relation to the upper abdominal organs. In most cases, your doctor will combine blood tests with this examination in order to come to a more accurate diagnosis.
