Three patients with choledochal cysts which demonstrated opacification of the wall follwoing diatrizoate injection are presented. The recognition of the rim enabled the authors to suggest the correct diagnosis by separating the cyst from the kidney and liver. Opacification may be based on a delayed diffusion effect relating to total body opacification.
