Ultrasounds available?


Recommended Posts

What sorts of ultrasound or scans are available for the abdominal area and bowel? I have IBS-C and am considering the possibility of pursuing one of these tests with hopes of getting a better diagnosis and perhaps ruling out any serious problems. I don't know what a scan would show, but does anyone know what the possibilities are that I could possibly request?

There is a new'ish ultrasound that has started to be used in the US call Intestinal Ultrasound (IUS). It's not different than a usual ultrasound, but someone has to be trained to do IUS. IUS plays a crucial role as a non-invasive and accurate tool to diagnose and assess inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
