Cholangioscopy is a noninvasive endoscopic method used for both visual examination and therapeutic intervention of the bile ducts. Cholangioscopy is primarily used in the treatment of bile duct stones and the evaluation of biliary strictures.

During the procedure, an endoscope will be used to visualize and examine the biliary ducts of the pancreas and hepatic ducts of the liver. SpyGlass cholangioscopy technology is used for visualization and to aid in large stone removal, evaluation of indeterminate biliary strictures, and to diagnose biliary polyps.  The endoscope will be inserted through the mouth, into the digestive tract, stomach, and bile ducts.

Patients will receive anesthesia prior to the procedure. Patients may return home following the procedure but must be accompanied due to use of anesthesia.
