B) T2-weighted axial magnetic resonance imaging shows multiple gallstones and a thickened gallbladder wall (arrow), inflammation and edema of the adjacent liver, fat tissue, and proximal duodenum. C) Eight weeks after cholecystectomy, contrast-enhanced CT shows a residual abscess in the adjacent fat tissue (arrowhead).
