MRCP: Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is a non invasive way to diagnose diseases of the biliary tree and the pancreatic ducts. It is done using an MRI machine and requires no injections or sedation (usually). ERCP is the invasive method using a scope inserted into the mouth into the small bowel, requiring sedation and a skilled physician with expertise in the procedure .
