This chapter uses clinical vignettes and multiple-choice questions to explore core and advanced principles of gastrointestinal ultrasound. The cases will assess image acquisition pearls and pitfalls, image interpretation, false-positive and false-negative findings, and integration into patient management. Clinical vignettes will include stable and unstable patients presenting with undifferentiated symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and flank pain. Each case will include detailed explanations for correct and incorrect answer choices, incorporating landmark studies as well as the latest literature that clinical sonographers will find of interest.
