As far as I know there are not any tests that will show the actual adhesions. I have had CAT scans, xrays, ultrasounds etc.. they have never shown up but both my doctor and I know that I have massive adhesions and scar tissue. They were able to dectect them once by seeing a narrowing in my bowel which they "believed" was caused by adhesions and scar tissue but they never actually "saw" them outside of surgery.

Good Luck! Kris
