A member asked:

My friend had an ultrasound the other day and on the notes they have put that his gallbladder was not well distended, what does this mean?

Had he eaten.: For an ultrasound of the gallbladder to be diagnostically useful one has to fast for at least six hours before the test. If he had eaten within that time frame, the gallbladder may have not been well distended.
