B) The stone is smaller than the beam. (c) The stone is large, but just out of the beam. (d) The stone is large, but outside the focal zone, where the beam is wider. fills the width of the beam (Fig. 4). This will happen easily with large stones, but a small stone may occupy less space than the beam, allowing sound to continue behind it, so a shadow is not seen. Small stones must therefore be within the focal zone (narrowest point) of the beam and in the centre of the beam to shadow (Fig. 5). Higher-frequency transducers have better resolution and are therefore more likely to display fine shadows than lower frequencies.
It is not uncommon to find further pathology in the presence of gallstones and a comprehensive upperabdominal survey should always be carried out. Gallstones are associated with a number of conditions. They occur when the normal ratio of components making up the bile is altered, most commonly when there is increased secretion of cholesterol in the bile. Conditions which are associated with increased cholesterol secretion, and therefore the formation of cholesterol stones, include obesity, diabetes, pregnancy and oestrogen therapy.
The gallbladder itself is abnormally small, rather than just contracted. Cystic fibrosis also carries an increased incidence of gallstones because of the altered composition of the bile and bile stasis and the wall might be thickened and fibrosed from cholecystitis. PORCELAIN GALLBLADDER When the gallbladder wall becomes calcified the resulting appearance is of a solid reflective structure causing a distal shadow in the gallbladder fossa (Fig. 18). 16). A porcelain gallbladder probably results from a gallbladder mucocoele—a long-standing obstruction of the cystic duct, usually from a stone.
