Intrahepatic Bile Duct Dilatation
CT Scan: "Liver is normal in morphology. Mild intrahepatic biliary duct dilatation. Normal common bile duct". Is this normal?
Relatively normal: If the radiology report states normal morphology it is fairly certain there are no big worries. We do not know why the scan was ordered but mild intrahepatic biliary duct dilatation may be completely normal for this patient. The normal common bile duct finding means the liver, pancreas and gallbladder empty in to a normal duct that drains into the intestine. All good findings. Good luck.
MRCP "Persistent mild dilation of the central intrahepatic duct. There are areas of mild narrowing & irregularity of the intrahepatic ducts & proximal common duct. No dilation of common bile duct. Gallbladder sludge is present." What causes this?
Nonspecific: I believe that the ductal findings are nonspecific. Sludge in the gall bladder can cause abdominal distress and indigestion. A gastroenterologist would sit down with the radiologist and review the images and decide whether more imaging studies like an MRI or liver biopsy are advisable depending upon your symptoms or lack of symptoms.
What does diffuse dilatation of common bile duct & mild dilatation of hepatic ducts mean? Maximal luminal (phenobarbital) diam. Of common is 14-15mm. MRI sched. Liver
Dilated bile duct: The bile duct is the duct the drains bile out of the river and into the intestines. Dilated bile duct can be a sign of pancreatic, bile duct, liver, or gallbladder disease. It is an important sign, and it definitely needs to be evaluated until a cause is identified and taken care of. Do not hesitate to get the MRI and follow up with your doctor on the results. Good luck.
...2cm shadowing stone in the fundus. No pericholecystic fluid seen. No biliary ductal dilation seen, the common bile duct measures 5 mm. Meaning?
Gallstone: It seems like you have a gallstone sitting in there, not really doing anything. It’s not causing an infection. It’s not blocking the passage of bile. But it could. If it decides to move, that 20mm stone won’t pass out through that 5mm common bile duct. You may want to at least have a general surgeon aware of this.
With a lesion already identified, bile duct dilation and pain, does this sound malignant? Total beta hCG is high, monocytes-1.1. Anion gap-10
Diagnosed & hospitalized Apr-2 through Apr. 6 w/pyelonephritis, common bile duct dilation, dehydration, metabolic acidosis, renal cyst. Still in pain!

I have elevated liver enzyme ast (sgot)412 ALT (sgpt) 317 GGT 186 dilation of the common bile duct 1 CM no gallbladder?
Liver issue: Enzymes ast and alt are inside liver cells. When liver is injured by disease or medication, enzymes leak out, resulting in elevation. Can be due to many reasons, including medications like statins. An elevated GGT suggest biliary problems, but is not that specific. The normal common bile duct measures less than 0.8 cm, but after the gb is removed, can be 1cm. Complete history needed for this.See 1 more doctor answer

Minimal dilatation of the left sided intrahepatic ducts. A thin silver of fluid is seen around the liver. Please advice what it means? Is this Normal?
Radiologist: In situations like this your physician should sit down with the radiologist who interpreted your study and get an impression of what possibilities the findings suggest and whether further imaging studies or repeat study in the future is recommended. This is truly a matter for a radiological specialist and a referral to a gastroenterologist may be recommended also.
Elevated liver enzyme, mrcp indicated mild intrahepatic ductal dilatation, mild splenomegaly, normal ercp, what causes that, how it treated?

Hard to say,,: It looks like, from your history, that you've had a great deal of issues. Your gallbladder being removed may have, at least in part, been due to gallstones which would explain a lot of the bile duct situation. Gastric bypass also has complications. But your liver also has something going on now that you need to see your doctor soon to find the cause and treat before it gets worse. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
I had a CT and it said I have a 1-cm cyst in my left liver lobe and central intrahepatic biliary tree dilatation should I worry?
No: Liver cysts do not usually require treatment. The dilatation might be secondary to your cholecystectomy.
No: With adequate bile flow, a collapsed bile duct will open up sufficiently.
Yes: But these are rare, usually the tumor presents as a cause of a blocked bile duct. The fear is always malignancy, and then we find benign after surgery. Its best to see a gastroenterologist who does eus, and a hepatobiliary surgeon.
