Ultrasound of the gallbladder

  What is gallbladder ultrasound?

  A gallbladder ultrasound is an imaging procedure used to examine the gallbladder, a small organ located under the liver. High-frequency sound waves are used to produce detailed images of the gallbladder and surrounding structures, which helps in the diagnosis of various conditions such as gallstones, inflammation, or tumors.  

  Indications for ultrasonography:

  An ultrasound examination of the gallbladder may be recommended for individuals experiencing symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, or jaundice. Ultrasound may also be used for screenings or to monitor gallbladder disease.

Preparation for ultrasonography:

  It is advisable to make an appointment in the morning and come on an empty stomach. If you do not have free time in the morning, then you can make an appointment at any time convenient for you, but do not eat or drink for at least 4 hours the day before. Also, for a more accurate diagnosis, it is recommended to take enzymatic preparations or absorbents, such as activated charcoal, 1-2 days before the appointment. 

How does the procedure go?

During the procedure, you will sit comfortably on the examination table. A water-based gel is applied to the abdomen to facilitate the transmission of sound waves. The ultrasound doctor then moves a handheld device called a transducer over your abdomen, emitting sound waves that bounce off the gallbladder and create a real-time image on the monitor. The procedure is painless and usually takes 15-30 minutes.
