Using a high-resolution real-time scanner, a technique has been established in our laboratory for visualizing the entire extrahepatic bile duct with multiple longitudinal oblique approaches and, if necessary, several transverse scans through the pancreatic head. To determine the normal size of the extrahepatic bile duct and to evaluate the effect of aging on the duct diameter, 256 healthy subjects and patients without hepatobiliary disease were examined using this technique from January to… CONTINUE READING
