Find real pictures of a gallbladder on the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons and WebMD websites. The gallbladder is located under the liver and stores the bile produced by it. Bile ducts connect the gallbladder to the pancreas and liver, as seen in the picture on WebMD.com.
A gallbladder is typically full of bile before meals. After a person eats, the gallbladder receives signals to send the bile to the small intestine to digest any fats. When there is no bile in the gallbladder, it appears flat and resembles a deflated balloon. Some problems that occur in the gallbladder are gallstones, cholecystitis and cancer, notes WebMD.
