ERCP or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is an advanced minimally invasive diagnostic procedure. Patients with symptoms associated with the gastrointestinal tract may undergo ERCP to diagnose the cause of the symptoms.

During the ERCP procedure, doctors thread a small, flexible tube through the mouth and throat into the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, pancreas and beginning of the small intestine.

Using the ERCP endoscope fit with a small camera, doctors can examine the inside of the GI tract without making an incision. Once the endoscope reaches the area to be examined, doctors can release a dye. This contrast dye makes it easier to see any problems through X-ray. Sometimes, other procedures may be completed through the endoscope while it is in place.

While this is only one of the imaging tests available for patients with gastrointestinal tract issues, ERCP is minimally invasive and accurate. Florida Hospital strives to provide the highest level of care for patients through advanced technology and medical expertise.

If you suffer from related conditions, ask your doctor as to whether an ERCP might be helpful in diagnosing your symptoms.
