On computed tomography (CT), gallbladder pathology may be detected incidentally or as the etiology of symptoms that prompted imaging. Accurate pathologic diagnosis can be challenging, however, due to overlapping appearances of malignant and benign gallbladder disease. This pictorial essay takes a pattern-based approach to CT of the gallbladder, to help the radiologist formulate the proper differential diagnosis.
