Abstract

Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is a non-invasive imaging method that has proved to be valuable for the assessment of biliary and pancreatic disorders [1]. This technique basically exploits the long T2 relaxation times of slow-moving or stationary fluid to display bile and pancreatic juices with a high signal intensity on T2-weighted images.
