Overview


What is MRCP?

The Magnetic Resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) test uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear 3D images. The MRCP is a radiationless test which creates images of the hepatobiliary and pancreatic systems including the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and pancreatic duct. These images can be stored on an electronic device which can be printed on a film. The complete procedure takes about 40-60 minutes. It helps to detect any abnormalities in urinary tract.


Why is MRCP done?

  1. To diagnose stones presence in the gall bladder, bile duct, pancreas, pancreatic duct, liver
  2. To detect pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas which causes abdominal pain)
  3. To find out any obstruction due to presence of the gall stones
  4. To detect infections of the bile ducts like cholangitis
