Ultrasonography of jaundice

Abstract

The importance of ultrasonography in the evaluation of jaundice is stressed with an analysis of 47 cases ofjaundice. 31 cases proved to be obstructive and 16 non-obstructive jaundice. Obstructive jaundice could bedifferentiated from non-obstructive jaundice in all but 2 cases,(96%). The site of obstruction in 31 cases ofobstructive jaundice could be predicted correctly in 23 cases of 31, (90%), and cause of obstruction with anaccuracy of 35% as well. One can certainly recommend ultrasonography as an initial procedure of choice in jaundicepatients.
