The article offers introduction to the online tutorial entitled "Cholangiocarcinoma and its management" offered by the magazine. It states that cholangiocarcinoma develops in the biliary epithelium and contributes to the growth of mortality rates in Great Britain. In addition, it shows that cholangiocarcinoma leads to the development of sclerosing cholangitis. It reveals that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be utilized for the disease's diagnosis.
