The inflammation can be detected in the blood's amylase and lipase. Blood count test can also help in the diagnosis of any type of gallbladder problem. Increase in the count of white blood cells may indicate infection.

Using sound waves for the detection of gallstones is a very widely used method. The stone can be seen in the monitor connected to the ultrasound device. It has some restrictions like, it cannot detect the gallstone in obese people.

Endoscopic Ultrasound
In this method, an instrument which has a scope at the end is used. This instrument is then passed down to the intestine from where the doctor can see any problem inside the gallbladder. This method is very helpful in finding out gallstones as well as pancreatic cancer.

CT Scan

ERCP or Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography
In this method, a tube is inserted down the throat to the stomach which injects a dye in the ducts of the gallbladder. Then with the help of X-rays, the organs can be easily seen and the problem can be found out.

MRCP or Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography
This test uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to produce a detailed picture of the gallbladder. This helps in detecting the gallstone and any inflammation in the organ easily.

This method uses radio active material, Hydroxy Iminodiacetic Acid (HIDA), which is injected into the patient which then helps in monitoring the functioning of the gallbladder.

After the diagnosis is confirmed, the treatment is started immediately. The gallstone can either be treated with the help of medicine or if required gallbladder surgery is conducted.
