El colecistograma es un procedimiento de rayos X utilizado para ayudar a evaluar la vesícula biliar. Para llevarlo a cabo es necesario consumir una dieta especial antes del examen y se deben ingerir tabletas de contraste para visualizar la vesícula biliar en la placa de rayos X. Esta prueba se utiliza para ayudar a diagnosticar trastornos del hígado y la vesícula biliar, incluyendo cálculos biliares y tumores.
