CT of the Gallbladder
The gallbladder is an oval or elliptical structure of near-water density on computed tomography (CT) that is usually located at the inferior surface of the liver, between the right and left lobes. The wall of the gallbladder is normally very thin and is particularly well seen after intravenous administration of contrast material.
