In all patients, the narrow neck of the gallbladder was clearly detected by US in the usual location before the main portal vein. Four of nine patients had small gallbladder…

A number of other less common conditions can prevent gallbladder visualization or recognition, and these conditions can be classified as: congenital anomalies, gallbladders contraction not due to stones, conditions that cause shadowing or reverberation from the near wall of the gall Bladder, and the solid gallBladder pattern.
