Abstract

Diseases affecting the biliary and pancreatic duct systems can be organized by radiographic appearance and location of the lesions. This presentation will use such a pattern approach to facilitate effective differential diagnosis. The present chapter will review the processes causing abnormalities of the pancreatic and biliary duct systems and will establish a differential diagnostic framework for the accurate interpretation of cholangiography, pancreatography, and other imaging tests.
