Abstract

In recent years, noninvasive evaluation of Caroli's disease has been demonstrated by computed tomography, ultrasonography, and nuclear scintigraphy. Confirmation of Caroli's disease requires invasive procedures such as percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography or endoscopic retrograde cholangiography. All of the techniques give valuable information making it easier to diagnose Caroli's disease and to determine its extent. In addition, associated abnormalities in organs outside of the biliary system may be revealed. Two cases are present to illustrate the radiographic and scintigraphic findings of Caroli's disease.
