Hello, I hope you are well, tomography is not a study indicated in the follow-up of a gallbladder polyp, the study indicated is conventional abdominal ultrasound every 6 to 12 months, with special attention on behavior, growth and presence of lithiasis.
The abdominal tomography is useful in cases of gallbladder cancer since it can better assess the vascular and extraorganic invasion to be able to decide which treatment to implement.
