Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Our objective was to suggest criteria for selection of a preoperative diagnostic technique for patients with gallstone disease. CONCLUSION. Use of MR cholangiography preferentially before laparoscopic cholecystectomy, on patients who have a moderate or high risk of common bile duct stones, can significantly reduce purely diagnostic endoscopic retrograde cholangiography.
