consultation for additional evaluation. Surgery may be in your future. If evaluating gallbladder function is desired, then a HIDA scan (also called hepatobiliary scan) may be ordered. Most helpful for you: HIDA with CCK - Uses a radioactive chemical injected via a vein to evaluate how the gallbladder fills with bile and also includes a hormone injection to see if GB empties like it should.

Gallbladder is contracted and contain multiple echogenic calculi.The common bile duct is 4mm and no filling defect is seen.Please advice me.

Do You Have Pain?

The presence of gallstones in the absence of symptoms DOES NOT warrant gallbladder surgery. In fact, most people with "silent" gallstones will never develop symptoms, as high as 75% of the time. I advise my patients to be familiar with the symptoms of gallbladder disease and return if these develop. While surgery is safe and easy, it is not risk-free.

Dr. Eric Goodman answered:

What are non shadowing echogenic foci of the kidney? Are they considered to be kidney stones?

Maybe

Nephrolithiasis
It depends on where the foci were seen. Were they in the kidney or in the renal sinus? In the cortex, it could be artifact or fat. In the renal sinus, it could be artfiact or kidney stone. If there is a concern for stones, CT is the most accurate test.
