SpyGlassTM

We use SpyGlass™ during an ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography), to diagnose and treat bile duct cancer, as well as some cancers of the liver, gallbladder and pancreas.

How it works

During an ERCP, a scope is inserted into the bile duct, and a smaller scope, the SpyGlass or cholangioscope, is inserted into the bigger scope.

The SpyGlass endoscope has a fiber-optic probe attached to a camera, which allows us to identify obstructions in the bile duct.

With SpyGlass, we can determine if there is a tumor inside the bile duct or if it is just inflamed. If it is a tumor, it can be biopsied. If there are any stones in the bile duct, we can remove them as well.
