Common Bile Duct Sludge
MRCP "Persistent mild dilation of the central intrahepatic duct. There are areas of mild narrowing & irregularity of the intrahepatic ducts & proximal common duct. No dilation of common bile duct. Gallbladder sludge is present." What causes this?
Nonspecific: I believe that the ductal findings are nonspecific. Sludge in the gall bladder can cause abdominal distress and indigestion. A gastroenterologist would sit down with the radiologist and review the images and decide whether more imaging studies like an MRI or liver biopsy are advisable depending upon your symptoms or lack of symptoms. ...Read more
CT Scan: "Liver is normal in morphology. Mild intrahepatic biliary duct dilatation. Normal common bile duct". Is this normal?
Relatively normal: If the radiology report states normal morphology it is fairly certain there are no big worries.

Gall bladder and removal of stone at the junction of cystic duct and cbd via open surgery. Stone of 15mm in bile duct and bile leak after 10months?
Nope: The gallbladder is a small hollow organ that holds bile. This helps us digest fat. When you look at the gallbladder with an ultrasound the bile can appear like sludge which probably just describes the consistency of the bile. Thickening of the gallbladder wall can be seen on the ultrasound as well and usually is a result of inflammation. These are two different findings. ...Read more

I have elevated liver enzyme ast(sgot)412 ALT (sgpt) 317 GGT 186 dilation of the common bile duct 1 CM no gallbladder?
Liver issue: Enzymes ast and alt are inside liver cells. When liver is injured by disease or medication, enzymes leak out, resulting in elevation. Can be due to many reasons, including medications like statins. An elevated GGT suggest biliary problems, but is not that specific. The normal common bile duct measures less than 0.8 cm, but after the gb is removed, can be 1cm. Complete history needed for this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
