Could you give me information on endoscan test for gall bladder?

I had a Colonoscopy and an endoscopy last week. My doctor found diverticulosis, gastric polyps, mild gastritis, sigmond polyps. We are also thinking my gall bladder has problems. I had an ultrascan last week and it indicated that I did not have any gall stones. The doctor mentioned another test we need to do this upcoming week. I think he said it was called an endoscan? They will be placing dye to see if my gall bladder is functioning. I am trying to read about this test on the internet, but can't find anything.

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Investigation of the gall bladder can be done via invasive or non invasive tests.

It is possible that the investigation may be a form of cholangiography which involves tests that can view the biliary tree and gall bladder.
This can be done in different formats but does involve the use of a dye.

I hope this helps
