Evaluation of the variants of biliary tree by MRCP in patients with primary hepato-biliary diseases and other abdominopelvic conditions
Introduction: Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is an excellent non-invasive imaging technique for the visualization of the detailed biliary anatomy.Methodology: 200 patients with primary hepatobiliary diseases and 200 patients referred for other abdominopelvic conditions with were evaluated by MRCP. Results: There was no statistically significant difference in these two groups in anatomic variation in hepatobiliary (p value=0.18) and cystic duct (p value=0.81)Conclusion: MRCP helps in pre-operative evaluation of the bile ducts, cystic ducts so as to avoid the possible operative complications related to variant anatomy.
