If the gallbladder looks dilated, make a careful search for an obstructing lesion at the neck; a stone in the cystic duct is more difficult to identify on ultrasound as it is not surrounded by echo-free bile (Fig. 8). Mirizzi syndrome Mirizzi syndrome is a rare cause of biliary obstruction in which the cystic duct is obstructed by a stone, which in combination with a surrounding inflammatory process compresses and obstructs the common hepatic duct, causing distal biliary duct dilatation. This is associated with a low insertion of the cystic duct into the common hepatic duct.

In these cases the operator can usually persevere and demonstrate the stone at the lower end of the duct. However, the duct may be dilated but empty, the stone having recently passed. Stones may be seen to move up and down a dilated duct. This can create a ball-valve effect so that obstruction may be intermittent. It is not unusual to demonstrate a stone in the CBD without stones in the gallbladder, a phenomenon which is also well-documented following cholecystectomy (Fig. 9). This may be due to a single calculus in the gallbladder having moved into the duct, or stone formation within the duct.

This characteristic is a sign of the normal, flexible nature of the liver and may be lost in some fibrotic diseases. The mean PV velocity is normally between 12 and 20 cm per second6 but the normal range is wide. (A low velocity is associated with portal hypertension. 20 (A) The porta hepatis.

Doppler of the portal venous and hepatic vascular systems gives information on the patency, velocity and direction of flow.
