Polyp and stone in GB

Images by Genevieve Carbonatto  

Both a polyp and a stone can be seen in the ballbladder. This is best visualised when panning through the gallbladder rather than with a still image

The stone casts a shadow, the polyp does not. While the stone is in the most dependent portion of the gallbladder , the polyp appears in the fundus of the GB










The polyp is less echogenic than the stone, does not cast a shadow and does not move when the patient is rolled into the left lateral position.

    • Thankyou Bahis. Being able to identify stones is so helpful in the patient who presents with abdominal pain in the ED.

      • Thank you for your comment Christina. Understanding the physics of ultrasound will improve image optimization and comprehension of artifacts. It is so important!
