OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to describe the imaging findings after laparoscopic cholecystectomy, including the normal postoperative findings and the typical appearances of major complications. The relative merits of the imaging techniques available are discussed. CONCLUSION Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a commonly performed surgical procedure and radiologists are often called on to identify or rule out postoperative complications. In such cases, the correct diagnosis is crucial in optimizing patient management.
