Code: RC509

Objective:

This session has three sections. First is Techniques for and MR Imaging, it reviews the basic anatomy and physiology of the biliary system. It also describes current available CT and MR techniques for evaluation of the bile ducts and gallbladder understanding the advantages and limitations the different imaging protocols. The second section is Anomalies, Stones, and Cholangitis (Acute and Chronic). It recognizes primary and secondary signs of biliary stone disease at CT and MR Imaging. This section also reviews radiological findings of biliary inflammation. Attendees will understand radiological findings critical to the surgical and medical management of biliary stones and cholangitis. They will also learn about the appropriate triage patients with radiological findings of non-malignant biliary disease. Third section is Malignant Lesions (including Gallbladder Carcinoma). It reviews the imaging features of the different types of cholnagiocarcinoma and their potential mimics on US, CT, and MR Imaging. This section also reviews the imaging features of gallbladder carcinoma and its potential mimics on US, CT, and MR Imaging.
