Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography or MRCP was established in the year 1991. It involves a non-invasive procedure of observing biliary and pancreatic ducts through medical imaging technique. This method is much better than Endoscopic Retrograte Cholangiopancreatography or ERCP. Basically, MRCP is performed to find out if some gallstones are lodging in any of the ducts surrounding the gallbladder.
Physicians use MRCP to assess the extent to which diseases of the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, pancreas and pancreatic duct have extended. These may include tumors, stones, inflammation or infection. Here the patients who are having pancreatitis are examined to detect the underlying cause. MRCP also diagnoses unexplained abdominal pains. In short, MRCP includes endoscopy, which uses an illuminated optical instrument to examine inside the body, with iodinated contrast injection and x-ray images.
