Abdominal sonograms were obtained before and after intravenous metoclopramide administration in 25 patients with a wide variety of abdominal complaints. Visualization of the pancreas was improved by this pharmacologic treatment in 44% of those patients in whom gas obscured the pancreatic bed. There was no improvement when fat was the primary prevention of visualization of the pancreas. There were no significant side effects of metoclopramide administration.
