Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is a type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam that helps in the detailed examination of the organs like liver, bile ducts, gallbladder, pancreas as well as pancreatic duct. It is noninvasive in nature and uses strong magnetic field combined with radio frequency pulses to bring out elaborate images of internal organs, soft tissues and bones.
