Gallbladder cancer: Best test to diagnose gallbladder cancer is with abdominal sonogram or ct scan. Then if these tests are suspicious, biopsy with interventional radiology can be done for confirmation.

Agree with Dr. G: Imaging studies can show if there is a lesion, however, for definitive diagnosis the tissue needs to be removed and examined by a pathologist.
