AbstractBackground: Many imaging modalities, such as USG, CT, and Invasive Cholangiography, have limitations and poor visualization of intraductal stones and leads to the requirement for intrusive procedures like ERCP and PTC. MRCP is a non-invasive imaging modality, which provides good visualization of the hepatobiliary system.
Aim and Objectives: To study the role of MRCP in screening and diagnosing pancreatico -biliary diseases and to study the imaging appearance of pancreatico-biliary diseases on Magnetic Resonance Cholangio-Pancreatography.
Materials and Methods: A correctional study of 50 patients of pancreatico-Biliary diseases were evaluated with MRCP using 1.5 T MRI attending KBNTGH attached to KBNUFMS, kalaburagi, over a period of one and half year
Results: Out Of the 50 patients, 31 were male and remaining 19 were female patients. The patients of > 40 years had the highest number of instances. Out of 50 patients who underwent MRCP, 14 has cholangiocarcinoma (Males-9 & Females-5), 11 patients had Pancreatits (Males-8 & Females-3), 07 had Choledocholithiasis (Males-2 & Females-5), 06 had Periampullary carcinoma, 05 patients had Carcinoma pancreas, 03 patients had Carcinoma Gall bladder, and other had post-operative stricture, choledochal cyst. Biliary strictures were seen in 12 patients, out of which 5 had benign strictures and 7 were malignant.
Conclusion: MRI and MRCP have been proven to be sensitive, non-invasive imaging modalities that aid in the early detection and diagnosis of disease as well as in providing crucial details of therapeutic and prognostic implications.
