Cholecystography is one of the most popular methods of examining the bile duct and gall bladder. It is carried out with the use of contrast medium. After absorption, it enters first into the blood, and then into the organ to be examined.
Cholecystography reveals the anatomical and functional features of the gallbladder in the presence of clinical manifestations of cholecystitis, the presence of a tumor or stones in the gall bladder, dyskinesia.
Cholecystography allows you to get ahead of the shape and size of the organ. Normally, the radiograph should have a pear-shaped shape, smooth contours and thin walls. Sometimes the form may vary slightly depending on the constitutional characteristics of the person.
With properly organized work, the doctor determines the presence of impaired patency, a decrease in the concentration capacity of the bile ducts, adhesions and scars.
