Abstract

A prospective blind study was performed to compare sonographic with postoperative findings of gallstone burden in 34 patients (10 males, 24 females; mean age 52 years). Gallstone size was assessed in single calculi (n=15) by measuring the largest diameter by ultrasonography (US). The ellipsoid algorithm was used to estimate US volume for both single and multiple gallstones. After cholecystectomy, diameters were measured in single stones; stone volume was assessed by the ellipsoid formula (single stones) and fluid displacement (single and multiple stones). Stone volumes assessed by the ellipsoid formula and fluid displacement correlated closely (r=0.98; p
