Data obtained on the biliary tract in initial clinical experience with the computed radiography (CR) system are presented in this chapter. In drip infusion cholecystocholangiography (DIC) combined with tomography, CR produced better images than the screen film; even in the case of low-dose exposure, CR was thought to be sufficiently usable for clinical diagnosis. In simultaneous multisection tomography, CR could probably present even better images if the exposure conditions were improved.
