Diagnosis procedures first involve some questions asked by a doctor to the patients. These questions are about the diet intake, family history of gallstone, etc. This is followed by a few physical examinations to test the pain in the abdomen. The confirmatory test may include:
- Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) - to locate the stuck gallstones in bile duct, a tine camera is incorporated down to gastrointestinal (GI) tract which sends out a complete video of gallbladder.
- Abdominal Ultrasound: This is an imaging test used to analyse if there is gallstones present in the gallbladder.
