Cholangioscopy: Diagnosis and Management of Biliary Disease

Cholangioscopy is an advanced endoscopic technique used for diagnosing and managing biliary diseases. It involves the insertion of a tiny camera into the bile duct to visualize and evaluate abnormalities. This procedure aids in the diagnosis of conditions like bile duct stones, strictures, and tumors. Cholangioscopy allows for direct visualization, biopsy, and therapeutic interventions in the bile ducts. It offers higher sensitivity and specificity compared to traditional imaging modalities in detecting biliary pathologies. Through cholangioscopy, precise and targeted treatments such as stone removal or stent placement can be performed. It plays a crucial role in guiding therapeutic decisions and optimizing patient outcomes. Cholangioscopy reduces the need for exploratory surgeries by providing detailed insights into biliary anatomy and pathology. Recent advancements in cholangioscopy technology have enhanced its diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities. Overall, cholangioscopy is a valuable tool in the comprehensive management of various biliary diseases, offering both diagnostic clarity and therapeutic interventions.
