Here's the gall bladder results of my non-contrast MRI: What does this mean? Is this removal? (Note: they couldn't get a vien to inject contrast to get better picture). I may have to have another MRI?
gallbladder is contracted with mildly thickened wall.
Additionally the cystic duct
is either collapsed or occluded. There is
no active pericholecystic
inflammation or fluid evident. This may be
the result of chronic
acalculous cholecystitis, prior inflammatory
process involving occlusion of
the cystic duct, or less likely a
biliary neoplasm. Nuclear medicine
hepatobiliary scan could further
assess the degree of biliary dysfunction. A
examination could potentially addressed the
possibility of neoplasm.
With ongoing symptoms, surgical consultation
may be appropriate.
Routine. This is a routine medical imaging report.

The results of your MRI show the gallbladder is
contracted with mildly thickened wall. The cystic duct is
either collapsed or occluded. There is no active
pericholecystic inflammation or fluid. Based on this
knowledge, I am recommending referral to surgery for your
gallbladder. I have put a referral in to the surgical
department. A staff member will call you to set up a
surgical consultation appointment.
