Med J Aust. 1977 Sep 3;2(10):329-31. doi: 10.5694/j.1326-5377.1977.tb99168.x.


Three patients with carcinoma of the head of the pancreas were examined by endoscopic pancreatography and retrograde cholangiography. In each case the pancreatic duct appeared normal. Abnormalities of the common bile duct were found in each case and are described. The use and value of endoscopic pancreatography and other methods of examination are discussed.
