ERCP is a diagnostic procedure for pancreatic cancer where pancreas or bile duct are studied.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a diagnostic procedure that utilizes upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy along with x-rays to study the pancreas or bile duct. The technique is also used for the treatment of conditions related to these organs. Apart from other diseases, ERCP assists in diagnosing tumors present in the pancreas. These can be then treated by inserting plastic tubes that can bypass blockages in the bile duct. It can also work in treating complications arising from gallbladder surgery.
