Of the resected patients, 4 patients 3. It is also the most economical test for preoperative staging.

Magnetic resonance and magnetic resonance cholangiography RM-cholangiography: Cir Esp, 86pp. In that series, postoperative radiation therapy did not improve survival in either resected or palliated patients. Cholangiography should define not only the location, but also visualize the uppermost extent of the tumor to determine the limits of resectability.

Diagnosis is canxer on clinical and laboratory findings. If preoperative staging suggests unresectable disease, klattskin if the patient is not a suitable surgical candidate, then a nonoperative approach is indicated.
