Ejection fraction: The ejection fraction is the portion of the gallbladder contents that are expressed from the gallbladder with contraction. Normally the gallbladder has an ejection fraction greater than 35%. An EF of 8% may indicate abnormal gallbladder function, and it needs to be considered along with the clinical situation to determine if a cholecystectomy should be performed. Good luck.
