Thank you for the query. Endoscopy checks the oesophagus, stomach and the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). USG may sometimes detect acute appendicitis, but not always. Appendicitis is usually a clinical diagnosis (right lower abdominal pain, fever, vomiting). If imaging is needed, CT scan is a better modality. Sometimes colonoscopy may be done, to rule out any lesion in the terminal ileum. Regards.
