MR Cholangiopancreatography (MRCP)

Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is a specialized MRI technique used to visualize the bile ducts and pancreatic ducts in high detail. It provides non-invasive images of the biliary and pancreatic systems without the need for contrast dye injections or invasive procedures. MRCP can help diagnose various conditions affecting these ducts, such as gallstones, bile duct obstruction, pancreatic tumors, or pancreatitis. It is particularly valuable for evaluating the anatomy and detecting abnormalities in the bile and pancreatic ducts, aiding in treatment planning and management decisions.
