Choledocholithiasis denotes the presence of gallstones within the bile ducts (common hepatic duct/ common bile duct). US is best choice of investigation for the patient with history of epigastric pain and jaundice as initial work up along with clinical and laboratory exam as it is easily available, cheap, non-invasive and no radiation. Magnetic resonance (MR), cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is increasingly being used to evaluate pancreatobiliary disease, providing a noninvasive alternative to endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) [1]. Many reports have described its usefulness and diagnostic accuracy in evaluating various pancreatobiliary abnormalities [2-3], and, according to some reports, in many instances MRCP can replace diagnostic ERCP.
