Debris-filled Biliary System – A difficult Diagnosis on MRI and MRCP.

Debris-filled Biliary System – A difficult Diagnosis on MRI and MRCP.

Read the publication >

We describe a debris-filled biliary system as a difficult diagnosis using magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP). A male patient aged 60 years showed a nonvisualized biliary system due to complete filling with debris. The following imaging features were observed: mild heterogeneity of intermediate signal on T2-weighted, MRCP and T1-weighted images and mild heterogeneous enhancement of periportal tissue on early and late postcontrast images. The absence of simple-appearing bile on T2 or MRCP images made the diagnosis of dilated, debris-filled biliary system challenging.
