The symptoms of acute cholecystitis can resemble many other illnesses. Our doctors will want to know about the patient medical history as well as their symptoms. They will check the patient abdomen for swelling or tender areas and may prescribe additional tests.
Abdominal ultrasounds are the most commonly prescribed imaging test used to diagnose cholecystitis.
Our doctors may need to advise more tests if the patient has been diagnosed with acute cholecystitis. These tests may include a liver function test and complete blood count test.
