Ultrasonic examinations of the abdomen in suspected visceral diseases may result in the detection of the pathologic processes that were not suspected before. To determine the frequency of these unexpected findings, the authors have examined 3000 patients for 2 years. A total of 792 pathologic processes were detected that were quite unexpected for the physicians who sent the patients for the examination. Liver tumor were detected in 36 cases, 25 of these metastatic ones, gallbladder stones were detected in 82 cases, tumors and cysts of the kidney and other conditions were detected. The authors come to a conclusion, that no matter what the suspected condition is, the specialist in radiodiagnosis should carry out an ultrasonic examination of the total abdomen.
