Will ultrasound help me? I am having problems with my gastritis, it looks like it has progressed and I am afraid that I might have ulcer now. How accurate is an ultrasound as a diagnostic procedure? Should I bother scheduling it at all or should I try something else? What would you do?

Try scheduling the endoscopy procedure, or if you have the time, do the both. Endoscopy is actually the procedure you need, but it is not a bad thing to do some addition examination. The problem with the ultrasound is that it cannot be 100% effective when it comes to ulcers because of the gases and ingesta (food remnants) in the stomach and that makes a diagnose hard to make.
