      Abstract

      Purpose

      The purpose was to calculate the sensitivity and specificity of computed tomography (CT) in assessing the resectability of gallbladder carcinoma (GBCA) with meta-analysis.

      Materials and methods

      A meta-analysis of the reported sensitivity and specificity of each study with 95% confidence intervals (CI) was performed.

      Results

      Pooled sensitivity was 99% (95% CI), and pooled specificity was 76% (95% CI).

      Conclusion

      CT can be used as an appropriate choice for the diagnosis and assessment of resectability of GBCA.
