Recent technical advances and the increasing use of ultrasonography in the evaluation of patients with upper abdominal pain, along with careful attention and effort during ultrasonographic examination, have increased the detection rate of unexpected lesions in the upper gastrointestinal tract. The purpose of this pictorial review is to demonstrate the ultrasonographic findings of various lesions involving the stomach and duodenum, detected during routine transabdominal ultrasonography without ingestion of water. In the study, the ultrasonographic findings are correlated with comparative studies of gastroscopy, CT, endoscopic ultrasonography, and barium studies of the upper gastrointestinal tract.
