Bile ducts endoscopic ultrasound is a method of visualization of the bile ducts using endoscopic ultrasound. It can be performed antegrade (through cholangiostomy) or retrograde (through the large duodenal papilla during retrograde cholangiopancreatography). Endobiliary ultrasonography is an effective method of diagnosing the pathology of the ductal system: developmental abnormalities, choledocholithiasis, papillitis, tumors of the gallbladder, biliary tract, etc. Due to the greater invasiveness and technical complexity, endoscopic ultrasound of the biliary tract is used only in cases where other diagnostic methods do not allow an accurate diagnosis.
