In 34 patients with a double dose failure of visualization at oral cholecystography, immediate laminography of the gallbladder bed produced satisfactory visualization of the common duct in 90 per cent of cases. By demonstrating the caliber of the choledochus, this simple, noninvasive addition to oral cholecystography may spare patients a further procedure and an additional delay in hospitalization.
