Abstract

Gallbladder diseases are very common entities with diverse features of presentation at clinical, radiological and pathological settings with variable morbidities and mortalities. It implies an altered hepatobiliary function. A majority of gallbladder diseases involve gallstones, which form about 95% of all gallbladder diseases. The noncalculus disease forms only about 4–5% of the cases. Inflammations of gallbladder, either acute or chronic, are commonly seen in association with calculus gallbladder. Benign neoplasms are very rare compared to malignant neoplasms that are more common but uncommon compared to inflammatory conditions. Gallbladder diseases are very common and it is appropriate to emphasise that knowledge of these diseases is imperative. In the present study of 50 patients an attempt was made to correlate the clinical, radiological and pathological features of gallbladder diseases and to ascertain the sensitivity of ultrasound in the evaluation of gallbladder diseases. The radiological diagnosis in gallbladder diseases had favourable results against the clinical diagnosis and has also been shown to be impressive against the pathological diagnosis. In our study the radiological diagnosis of gallbladder diseases is shown with reference to most of the disease conditions.
