Endoscopic Depiction of the Biliary Tracts and Pancreas (ERCP)

With the endoscopic depiction of the pancreatic duct and biliary tracts it is possible, in combination with x-ray technology, to detect, in a completely painless way, diseases of the pancreas and pathological changes in the region of the liver, gall bladder and bile ducts. If necessary, immediate treatment can be carried out during the same session, which obviates the need for a surgical intervention (e.g. removal of bile duct stones or insertion of stents in the bile duct). This examination is carried out with the patient fasting. Before the examination a pre-examination discussion is held with the doctor.
