Brief Answer:
You have stones in the gallbladder.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.

I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

You have multiples stones in the gallbladder. As you know, gallbladder is a bile storing organ and is located in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen. It is prone for gall stone accumulation

Your gallbladder wall is thin. If it is inflamed as in cholecystitis, the wall thickness would be increased. Therefore there is no inflammation.

Also your gallbladder has developed adhesions and is adherent to the surrounding structures. This most probably could be due to a previous attack of cholecystitis.

Radiological reports need to be correlated with clinical symptoms and signs. Therefore to comment better, please post the patients complaints and the reason for getting this test.

I hope that answers your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
