Despite the availability of new and highly sophisticated diagnostic techniques, tests of exocrine pancreatic function still represent one of the most important means of investigating pancreatic disease. Currently, the most widely used pancreatic function tests may be divided into two groups: direct (duodenal intubation) and indirect (tubeless). In this paper I shall deal with duodenal intubation.
