Abstract

The diagnostic possibilities of echotomography in the study of gallbladder diseases have induced a revision of the role of oral cholecystography as the first instance examination of the cholecystopathic patient. Oral cholecystography has a fundamental role in the selection of patients suffering from gallstones who can be cured by medical treatment with biliary acids. This role is only fulfilled if the technique is as accurate as possible.
