Except these methods of diagnostics also other methods of diagnostics of an abdominal cavity, and in particular, a X-ray, the computer tomography (CT) and ultrasonic research (ultrasonography) are quite often appointed. The computer tomography allows to estimate a pancreas, zabryushinny space and a liver. At ultrasonic research the pancreas, a liver, a gall bladder and bilious channels looks. In addition the magnetic and resonant tomography and a pankreatokholangiografiya can be carried out.
