Potential of ultrasonic examination for diagnosis of choledocholithiasis was analyzed in 47 patients. Ultrasonic scanners Acuson 128XP and SONOLINE Elegra with 2-9 MHz sensors were used. Choledocholithisis was diagnosed during transabdominal echography in 38 (80.9%) patients. Method of ultrasound-assisted "vibratory" palpation for diagnosis of mobile concrements of the common bile duct is presented. Causes of 2 (4.3%) false-positive and 7 (14.9%) false-negative results of examination are analyzed.
