Moustache sign : new guide for the scanning of pancreatic common bile ducts
Sung Woo Lee
Ultrasound scanning of the intrapancreatic segment of the common bile duct is difficult. The authors wish to present a new sonographic guide, "moustache sig", consisted of infraduodenal common bile duct forming one limb of the moustache and the hepatic artery forming the other. Using this sign as a guied, the distal common bile duct was visualized in all the 113 patients. Moustache sign is considered practically useful as a gride in the sonographic visualization of the intrapancreatic segment of the common bile duct.
