Abstract

Ultrasonography acts as a valuable diagnostic imaging modality in detecting the causes of obstructive jaundice. Due to its easy availability, non invasive nature and cost effectiveness, it can be considered as the first line imaging technique/ tool. ERCP is the invasive imaging tool and can be used for both diagnostic and therapeutic purpose.
