  10. how to recognize inflammed or enlarged GB on it...anyone plz comment in details little.

  11. Doc F Says:
  12. normall thickness of a GB should be less than 3mm. if inflammed the outline should be real clear, and there are evidence of liths so cholecystitis would be the outcome from the blockage and repeated contraction of the GB over the stones.

  13. @ badar!!
    see the last image which is the MRCP coronal section slice through gall bladder!!
    here gall bladder shows hypo signal intestiy showing distension!!! see the size!! n there is no continuation with the cistic duct! thats means blockage. iin MRCP parts having high water content ie large no. of hydrogen proton shows hypo signal intesity since it is heavily T2 weighed image i.e. MRCP
