Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography

  Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is a medical imaging technique which uses magnetic resonance imaging to visualise the biliary and pancreatic ducts in a non-invasive manner. This procedure can be used to determine if gallstones are lodged in any of the ducts surrounding the gallbladder. Stimulation with secretin may enable the acquisition of dynamic MRCP images. Compared to ERCP it is less invasive, but direct intervention is not possible.
