MRCP: Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is a non invasive way to diagnose diseases of the biliary tree and the pancreatic ducts.

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 .
