Percutaneous catheter drainage of the biliary system

Incidental filling defect in the distal CBD, likely calculus. 

Case Discussion

Percutaneous biliary cholangiography - 1980

Appearances of intrahepatic biliary dilatation and hilar stricturing of CBD and right and left ducts favoured a diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma. 

This was confirmed on autopsy.
