In the early stages of my psc, as my docs were looking for a diagnosis, I remember both psc and pbc being considered as possibilities. They used ercp with images to confirm psc..
I suggest that you make a list of your questions and take them to your appointment and ask nurse or doc. Mayo docs and nurses are terrific about answering and explaining everything so it is understandable in everyday language.
Also refer to the Mayo Clinic web site for information about diseases and treatment.
