This review focuses on the clinical impact of different modalities to image primary and secondary malignant biliary obstruction. The detection and staging of cancers of the pancreatic and biliary tract are best accomplished with endoscopic ultrasound, contrast-enhanced computed tomography, and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography. Three-dimensional ultrasound is a new noninvasive method that may be used increasingly as an initial test to select patients who require further diagnostic… CONTINUE READING
