Direct contact dissolution of gallstones



Direct contact dissolution of gallstones



Seminars in Liver Disease 7(4): 311-316



Four cases of sonographically visualised intraductal pancreatic calculi are reported. In three of these cases the calculi had been caused by chronic pancreatitis, and in one case by carcinoma of the head of the pancreas. The calculi did not present a uniform sonographic pattern, especially as regards echogenicity. A dorsal echo extinction was observed in three cases only. The non-uniform sonographic aspect of intraductal pancreatic calculi can probably be ascribed to differences in the lime content.
