Two Views of bile duct MRI scans.
A doctor or physician may order an MRI scan of the bile ducts to take pictures of the bile ducts and nearby organs. A MRI is useful because it shows healthcare providers what tissue is normal, and what tissue is not. Many organs in your body can be seen during a quality MRI of the bile ducts.
Special types of MRI scans can also be used on people who have bile duct cancer:
MR cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) can be used to look at the bile ducts.
MR angiography (MRA) looks at blood vessels.
A quality MRI scan can show radiologists what may be causing your signs and symptoms and it’s important that you find the best machines and radiologists possible to receive the best imaging.
A MRI scan may be done to help find suspicious areas that might be cancer or to learn how far cancer has spread.
A bile duct MRI can be used to guide doctors or surgeons during a procedure, such as a biopsy. An MRI scan may be used if surgery is needed to remove a growth or lump.
A MRI scan of the bile duct can show healthcare providers how well a treatment for a disease is working and the results of a quality MRI scan can help in the plan for the best treatment forward.
A MRI of a bile duct can often show a bile duct blockage, and sometimes can help tell a benign tumor from a cancerous one.
A MRI of a bile duct can show inflammation of infections as well.
A MRI of a bile duct can give an overview of the diseases of the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, pancreas, and pancreatic duct.
