OBJECTIVE Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has become established as the gold standard in imaging of the biliary tree. Recently, magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) has been introduced as a new, non-invasive imaging modality for the detection of bile-duct stones and other pathology related to the biliary tract and pancreas. The aim of this study was to determine how MRCP compared with ERCP in the diagnosis of choledocholithiasis. DESIGN AND METHODS A… CONTINUE READING
