Abstract

The role of imaging in the evaluation of gallbladder cancer could be detection, differential diagnosis, and staging. Imaging modalities used for gallbladder cancer are transabdominal ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), and endoscopic US(EUS). With the appropriate use of these multi-modalities, we can potentially increase our detection rate of early-stage gallbladder cancer and right differential diagnosis. In this article, we would like to focus on the differential diagnosis of gallbladder cancer, based on the gross morphologic classification.
