Ultrasonography for the digestive diseases are consisted of abdominal ultrasonography (US), endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) and color Doppler endoscopic ultrasonography (CDEUS). These play a supplementary role in comparison with the roentgenography and endoscopy. The information of the ultrasonography is different from these examinations. By US the collateral shunts of esophago-gastric varices are observed. EUS is useful for diagnosis of the properties of esophago-gastric varices and judgement of effects of treatment for these varices, gastric ulcer and vessels in ulcer base and hemorrhagic bowel diseases. CDEUS can show blood streams of esophago-gastric varices and hemorrhagic ulcer.
