Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a procedure combining endoscopy and x-rays to identify & treat problems of the bile and pancreatic ducts.

How is an ERCP Performed?

During the procedure, a special endoscope is used to examine the inside of the digestive system. Your gastroenterologist will then inject a contrast dye while x-rays are taken. The dye allows your doctor to identify each part of the digestive system on the x-rays.

Your physician may use ECRP to help diagnose several different digestive issues and diseases, including:

  • Problems in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and pancreas
  • Blockages or narrowing of the bile or pancreatic ducts
  • Fluid leakage from the bile or pancreatic ducts
  • Pancreatitis
  • Tumors

Doylestown Health offers a broad range of gastroenterology services to the community. Cutting-edge endoscopy procedures are leading to earlier detection and treatment of cancer and other digestive tract conditions.
