Cultivo biliar

El examen de cultivo biliar se realiza para determinar si hay infección en el tracto biliar. Para realizar este examen se coloca un espécimen de bilis en un medio de cultivo y se observa para verificar si hay crecimiento de microorganismos. Si no se observa crecimiento en el cultivo, se puede afirmar que no existe infección. De lo contrario, se aísla el crecimiento para determinar el método de tratamiento adecuado.Cultivo biliar
