magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography

Abbreviation: MRCP
Cholangiopancreatography by magnetic resonance imaging, a noninvasive alternative to endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. It is used if biopsies are not needed and direct visualization of the ampulla of Vater is not required.
