PURPOSE To investigate the yield of an oral superparamagnetic contrast agent (Lumirem) in turbo spin echo (TSE) single-shot MR cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) in patients candidate to laparoscopic cholecystectomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty patients (mean age: 52.2 years) scheduled for laparoscopic cholecystectomy underwent MRCP with TSE single-shot sequences. To cover the biliary tree, thick-section TSE images were acquired according to the cross-sectional location of the biliary tract. Six… CONTINUE READING
