Pancreas ultrasound can show the signs of acute or chronic pancreatitis. The symptoms of those are upper stomachache and diarrhea.

Gallbladder ultrasound can show the presence of inflammation and/or stones. It can also provide information of the need for surgical removal of the bladder. Cholecystitis and gallbladder stones may not show any symptoms or upper right stomachache.
