ERCP

An ERCP is a procedure that allows a doctor to look at your pancreatic and bile ducts, which drain from your pancreas, gallbladder and liver. It is done using an endoscope (which is camera on the end of a long thin flexible tube) and X-rays. It can be used to remove gallstones, look for blockages and to take samples of tissue for diagnosis
