Common bile duct stone (CBDS) or choledocholithiasis (ChL) is one of the major pathologies that lead to serious complications, and accurate and early diagnosis is very important. ChL diagnostics is based on clinical, laboratory and instrumental examinations. We used transabdominal songraphy (TAUS) for detecting CBDS and comparing it with endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancretography (ERCP).
