Gallstone analysis is important in determining the possible etiology of stone formation and the pathophysiology of cholelithiasis. Physical analysis using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), compared to chemical analysis, requires minimal sample volume, shows uniform sensitivity and specificity for all components and provides quantitative results with greater reproducibility. We studied the characteristics and distribution of gallstones using FT-IR in addition to the risk factors for gallstone formation in Korean patients. A better understanding of the mechanism underlying stone formation may help prevent gallstone development.
