Where to make ultrasound of the stomach, who is prescribed this procedure, and how the study is going, we will consider these questions. With the help of ultrasonic scanning it is possible to investigate the thickness of the mucous and muscular layer, the diameter of the lumen of the pyloric canal, the volume of the contents of the organ in different time periods, the signs of ulceration and other mucosal defects.

Ultrasonic scanning of the stomach, in contrast to endoscopy or fluoroscopy, gives complete information about the condition of the organ. Diagnosis determines the presence of polyps and tumors, scirrhous intramural forms of cancer, the intensity of bile flow and blood flow in the arteries.

The procedure is performed on an empty stomach. During the study, the doctor studies the structure and functioning of the stomach at rest. After this, the patient drinks 500-700 ml of water and the study continues. The doctor is studying the motor-evacuation function. Based on the results of the diagnosis, the patient receives information about the condition of the organ and recommendations for the attending physician.
