Type of MRI: Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (mrcp) is a type of MRI not requiring contrast, used to look at the biliary system (including liver, gall bladder, pancreas). Examples of problems that can lead to mrcp being performed include cholangiocarcinoma, pancreatic cysts, and biliary tract stones.

MRI study: A special MRI picture which shows us the biliary system of your liver and pancreas and gall bladder if you still have one. It is usually added onto an MRI of the abdomen. It does not require a special injection of contrast.
