Gallbladder Agenesisand Cystic Duct Absenceinan Adult Patient Diagnosed by Magnetic Resonance Cholangiography
: Reportofa Caseand Review of the Literature.
The utility of magnetic resonance cholangiography
has yet to be established.
A study by Jarhult J recruited 312 patients intended for laparoscopic cholecystectomy who were randomly allocated to undergo preoperative radiology (intravenous cholangiography or magnetic resonance cholangiography
) or to a control group.
Contrast-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Cholangiography
: Technical Features
To determine the specific anatomical variations, several studies have been conducted using different modalities like cadaveric research , intraoperative cholangiogram [16, 17], or imaging such as ultrasonography  and magnetic resonance cholangiography
But ERCP is preferred over magnetic resonance cholangiography
in patients with known PSC despite the substantial risk of pancreatitis, he noted.
Studies report that magnetic resonance cholangiography
has 66% sensitivity to show accessory bile ducts, whereas helical computed tomography (CT) cholangiography has up to 100% sensitivity.
