Gallbladder Ultrasound What to Expect & How to Best Prepare

If you’re scheduled for a gallbladder ultrasound, you may be wondering what to expect.  

This type of ultrasound is used to assess the health of your gallbladder and look for any abnormalities. 

During the ultrasound, a gel will be applied to your  

skin and a small probe will be placed on your abdomen. 

The probe will emit sound waves that create images of your gallbladder. 

These images will be displayed on a computer screen for the technician to assess. 

The whole procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes and is usually painless.
