The improvement and the common medical software of assorted di­ agnostic imaging modalities, equivalent to diagnostic ultrasonography, X-ray computed tomography, unmarried photon emission computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging, were past all expectation. particularly, ultrasonography and X-ray computed tomography have be­ come significant diagnostic instruments for ailments of the liver, the biliary tract, and the pancreas. they typically have almost changed different traditional imag­ ing modalities together with invasive angiography and percutaneous trans he­ patic cholangiography. One modality might supplement or clash with one other or different modalities. each one modality might be rigorously chosen with due regard for its diagnostic efficacy. during this ebook, the 1st part includes 9 chapters facing present thoughts of every diagnostic modality appropriate to the liver, the biliary tract, and the pancreas. the second one part bargains with illnesses of the liver, the biliary tract, and the pancreas and takes the shape of case presentation with dialogue of the importance of diagnostic imagings and diagnostic process. education of the manuscript used to be made attainable via the aid of Dr. S. Fujita, who ready the pictures, and Mrs. Sobajima, who typed the unique manuscript. Dr. S. Miura and leave out Y. Shimizu less than­ took the exertions of translating our manuscript from jap into English. i want to specific my deep appreciation to some of these folks, in addition to to the participants to this publication, and in addition to the publishers, Shujunsha, Japan and Springer-Verlag.

' With acute hepatitis, the echo level in the whole liver becomes lower, and accordingly the echo of the wall of the portal vein is brightly visualized, and the observable range of the portal vein becomes broadened. Conversely, chronic hepatitis is characterized by a weak echo in the wall of the portal vein, the ultrasonically visible portal vein fades, and a rough and moderately enhanced echo in the liver parenchyma can be visualized [48]. 4 Gallbladder and Bile Duct A normal finding observes the gallbladder as an unechoic eggplant-shaped image (Fig.
