0 images remaining
The gallbladder is distended, showing a 2.6 cm calcified stone within, thick walls, and surrounding fat-stranding and free fluid. The common biliary duct is enlarged in calibre (11mm) and demonstrates ill defined filling defects within its distal portions (measuring up to 8 mm on axial plane).
Within the limitations of a non-contrast study the remainder of the imaged upper abdominal content appears unremarkable.
Conclusion: Choledocholithiasis associated with cholecystitis.
