The saturation index is the ratio of the actual amount of cholesterol present in a bile sample to the maximal amount of cholesterol that can be dissolved in it. Bile that has a saturation index of 1 is “saturated”; when the saturation index is less than 1 the bile is “unsaturated”; and when it is greater than 1 the bile is “supersaturated”. The degree of saturation can also be expressed as a percentage of saturation by multiplying the saturation index by 100. For example, on the boundary of the micellar zone, bile is saturated and the CSI is 100%.
