  • Figure 1
    Contrast-enhanced CT of choledochocele.

    Multiplanar reconstruction (a) and axial image (b) shows a cystic lesion within the duodenum (arrow) which communicates with the common bile duct (CBD). Notice also the dilatation of the CBD (arrowhead).

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Cysts;
