Abstract

One hundred and twenty-five consecutive patients with obstructive jaundice were prospectively studied by ultrasonography to determine the level and cause of obstruction. These were diagnosed precisely in 80 (72%) and 52 patients (41.6%) respectively. The results were compared with cholangiography. The final diagnosis was established at surgery (97 cases) and fine needle aspiration cytology (28 cases). While US is an excellent screening modality in distinguishing obstructive and non-obstructive jaundice, cholangiography is still the gold standard for determining the precise anatomic level and cause of obstruction.
