Several tests are available to diagnose or look for possible pancreas, liver, gallbladder or duct related diseases. The choice of which and how many tests to perform depends on your medical history and current symptoms. Therefore, it may be that you have already had some or all of these or that some of these alternative do not apply in your particular situation.
The alternative tests include:
· Blood tests
· Ultrasound
· CT scan or MRI.
These tests are noninvasive and are often good starting points for diagnosing possible diseases.
If you have questions for your particular situation, you should discuss the different alternative methods for this procedure with your doctor and decide which one, if any, is appropriate for you.
