Gallstones: Mrcp is an MRI test used mainly to look for gallstones trapped in the ducts leading from the gallbladder to the stomach and inside of the liver. In a simple sense it is a computer enhanced method to look for such stones without doing a more invasive procedure called an ercp. Can also be used to look for cancers/other lesions that put pressure on the bile ducts of the liver/ductal narrowings.
