If you are suffering from gastrointestinal issues, many different imaging tests can be beneficial in diagnosing diseases of the digestive system. Standard imaging tests for gastric conditions include MRIs, CT scans, and ultrasound. Recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI) have become a viable alternative to CT scan. An MRI can assess the entire abdomen within minutes, giving sensitive diagnostic information similar to a CT scan but with more precise imaging ability.
If you are experiencing gastrointestinal issues, whether bloating, abdominal pain, trouble passing stool, difficulty swallowing, or something else entirely, reach out to your GP as soon as possible. When experiencing acute abdominal pain, a rapid imaging test is crucial in diagnosing illnesses such as choledocholithiasis, acute pancreatitis, acute cholecystitis, appendicitis, and inflammatory bowel disease.
Diagnostic tests can help medical professionals determine what is causing digestive symptoms and to choose the most effective treatment plan. If you or a loved one are experiencing digestive difficulties, consult your GP and discuss this as soon as possible.
