Rolling stone sign

Last revised by Dr Tom Foster on 27 Jul 2022

The rolling stone sign refers to the presence of gallstones within the gallbladder that are mobile when the patient moves.

Small gallstones can sometimes be difficult to diagnose due to the absence of posterior shadow artefact but the presence of a rolling stone sign increases the confidence of diagnosis 1.
