The first generation of excretory cholecystocholangiography was cholecystography, which was originally performed by Graham and Cole  using tetrabromophenolphthalein sodium. Since then, contrast media have been improved, and with various new techniques and X-ray photographing techniques, today’s excretory cholecystocholangiography has been refined.
