Liver Problems? Will CT scan of abdominal area help detect liver or gallbladder problems?

If there are still discomforts at the liver and gallbladder areas, but the results for liver function test are normal, would a CT scan of abdominal area help detect anything ? Or as long as the results for liver function test are normal, the liver and gallbladder should be fine?

Pls help! Many thanks

    The best test for determining GB problems is the Nuclear Medicine Hepatobiliary Scan. It determines if the GB is ejecting enough bile in a specified amount of time, thus determining if there is a blockage or inflammation of the GB.

    More than likely, if your LFT's are normal, there's nothing wrong with your GB. Anything's possible though.

    The liver can be evaluated on a CT. You would need an ultrasound for gallbladder. CT is not usually used for gallbladders.
