Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio Pancreatography (ERCP)

What is ERCP?

An ERCP is an x-ray examination which uses an endoscope to examine the bile or pancreatic duct, which are located in the small bowel. These ducts will be located with x-ray dye.

An endoscope is a narrow flexible tube (about the thickness of your little finger) compiled of thousands of fine glass bundles which allows the reflection of light to occur. A lens is connected to the end of the endoscope. When this is connected to a processor it allows the endoscopist to view the gastrointestinal tract on the TV monitor.

Information for patients

You have been advised to have an ERCP (Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio Pancreatography). This procedure allows the doctor to take detailed x-rays of the bile duct and/or pancreas.

 

Why do I need an ERCP?

This procedure can help your doctor to identify any abnormalities in the biliary system (liver, gall bladder and pancreas). Stones in the bile duct or blockages can also be treated during an ERCP. In most cases you will be admitted to hospital the day of the procedure.
