Description

Biliary system diseases are common in medical practice. After obtaining the patient’s history and performing a physical examination, conventional B-mode ultrasound and colour Doppler imaging (CDI) are the imaging methods of choice in, for example, the evaluation of right upper quadrant pain and obstructive jaundice in patients with elevated cholestasis indicating enzymes and many other hepatobiliary diseases. In the hands of an experienced ultrasound practitioner ultrasound has become a diagnostic tool equal in importance to endoscopy. Primarily, ultrasound is the method of choice in the confirmation or exclusion of dilated bile ducts, cysts and calcifications.
