  • Your pancreas makes an enzyme called lipase. When you eat, lipase is released into your digestive tract to help your intestines break down the fats in food.
  • One of the causes of severe abdominal pain is inflammation of the pancreas. A few blood tests can help determine the cause of abdominal pain. Checking amylase and lipase levels can help determine if you have pancreatitis.
  • A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), is a type of noninvasive test that uses magnets and radio waves to create images of the inside of the body.
  • Abdominal CT scans are used when a doctor suspects that something is be wrong in the abdominal area but can't find the specifics through a physical examination.
  • A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is a noninvasive test that uses magnets and radio waves to create images of the inside of your body. It allows doctors to see details of your organs and tissues without having to make any incisions. Accordin...
  • An endoscopy is a procedure in which your doctor uses specialized instruments to view and operate on the internal organs and vessels of your body.
  • An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. The technology is similar to that used by sonar and radar, which help the military detect planes and ships. An ultrasoun...
  • When food enters the small intestine, the pancreas is stimulated to release a fluid containing inactive digestive enzymes (which help break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins) and bicarbonate (a base that helps neutralize the acid entering the...
  • Find information on why a serum albumin test is performed, how to prepare for the test, what to expect during the test, and how to interpret results.
