abstract

  • IODIDA-scanning has proved a valuable non-invasive method for the assessment of liver parenchymal function, intrahepatic abnormalities and of bile flow in cases of complex biliary obstruction. This is particularly valuable with the Roux-Y biliary reconstruction since ERCP is impossible and PTC an invasive method which, although supplying an accurate picture of major biliary obstruction, fails to characterize hepatic function and bile flow.
