This study is an analysis of the clinical value of ultrasonic diagnostic technique in the differential diagnosis of acute abdomen of the liver and gallbladder. Methods from January 2015 to November 2017, 641 cases of acute abdomen admitted to Macao Conde de Sao Januario Hospital were retrospectively analyzed. Among 641 cases of acute abdomen, 280 cases (43.7%) were diagnosed as acute appendicitis, 168 cases (26.3%) had acute pancreatitis, 79 cases (12.3%) had acute cholecystitis, 65 cases (10.1%) had urinary stones, 49 cases (7.6%) had liver abscesses. In 641 cases of acute abdominal disease, 584 cases were consistent with the results of ultrasonic examination and final diagnosis, which accounted for 91.1% of the total number of cases. Therefore, ultrasound diagnostic technology has a good clinical value in identifying acute abdomen, which helps to make correct pathological diagnosis, reduce misdiagnosis rate, and has no radiation and noninvasive.
