Color Doppler sonography revealed a distinctive flow pattern with partial and total flow reversal in the right(More)
Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is a method which is reliably used in the imaging of the pancreatobiliary system. The method utilizes heavily T2-weighted sequences. Thanks to the great advantages of this particular method, the anatomy of the intra and extrahepatic biliary systems can be investigated properly, reliably, and noninvasively,(More)
