    Then you can't call it "Isolated traumatic rupture of the gallbladder", correct?

    There were 2 small superficial liver lacerations near the gallbladder, in segments 4B and 5, were present. However, there were no other injuries.

    Maybe it's the windowing but it seems to me that the more cranial portions of the liver are more hypodense than the inferior portions - mild edema due to contusion?

    never seen a case like this - no other injuries of the parenchymal organs ???
