In brief: Ultrasound

Liver enzymes could be elevated with gallbladder inflammation from gallstones or common bile duct stones.
Best test to start with is an ultrasound. If no gallstones then a hida scan with ejection fraction to check for function. This may not be the only reason your enzymes are elevated.
