If a ultrasound blood tests and ct scans of the liver and gallbladder are normal can there still be problems with the liver or gallbladder?

Possible: For example, you may have hepatitis, yet normal liver function tests and a normal ultrasound...Hepatitis is also tested for in the blood, but maybe that was nor done?, etc. If you feel you have problems, get an evaluation, and depending on the history you provide and the examination, the provider may order tests if they feel it necessary. Best wishes.
