Ishpreet Singh, Adhish P J Clifford, Atul Saxena

Background: The present study was conducted to assess the utility of CT in determination of gall bladder disorders. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 45 patients of both genders. CT-Scan examination was performed in all patients on Philips 64-slice whole body scanner after giving oral and intravenous contrast as and when required. The axial scans with coronal and sagittal reformatting were done. Results: Out of 45 patients, males were 25 and females were 20. The difference was non- significant (P- 0.5). Common lesions were Gall bladder CA (10), distal cholangio CA (8), BG mass (12) and cholelithiasis (15). The difference was significant (P- 0.01). Sensitivity of CT was 94.2% and specificity was 95.1%. Conclusion: CT has high sensitivity and specificity in detection of gall bladder lesions. Its utility increases when other modalities fail to give better results.
Key words: CT, Gall bladder, Sensitivity.
