By means of an ultrasound examination of the upper abdomen, we can diagnose early on numerous diseases of the upper abdominal organs, such as the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and kidneys. Widening of the abdominal aorta, in particular, can be detected and treated in a timely manner. Even tumor diseases can often be diagnosed at an early stage thanks to this gentle and painless examination.
