Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

 

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography is a procedure that records X-Ray imagery of the bile duct and pancreas. This is performed by involving a flexible tube that enters the mouth and into the stomach and the small intestine (duodenum). It goes through the papilla to get to the bile and pancreatic duct. To see the insides clearly a tiny amount of dye will be injected into the ducts prepared for X-Ray Imaging.

Why do you need Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)?

This procedure allows your doctor to treat symptoms for jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes) and upper-abdominal pain. Essentially, it's for determining whether there are any stones or tumour in the bile duct, liver, or pancreas, and for obstructions. Also, it's useful for before and post gallbladder surgical to enhance the surgical process.
