Abstract

Biliary sludge and microlithiasis appear to be stages of the same metabolic disorder, diagnosed differently; sludge by its typical features on ultrasonography and microlithiasis by microscopic examination of bile collected from the duodenum or common bile duct. Biliary sludge is typically echogenic without any acoustic shadowing; seen as low-level echoes that shift and layer in the dependent portion of the gallbladder; whereas microlithiasis is diagnosed by polarizing light microscopy; under which these crystals are found to have rounded contours and black centres due to scattering/absorption of light.
