This educational poster has 3 aims: Illustrate the normal post-operative changes after hepatobiliary surgery Show the most important post-operative early and late complications Focus the potential and the limits of the MR imaging
The increasing number of hepatobiliary surgical procedures,
such as laparoscopic cholecystectomies,
bilio-enteric anastomoses are associated with an increase in postoperative biliary complications. Cholangiopancreatographic magnetic resonance imaging (MRCP) plays a fundamental role in evaluating biliary diseases and also is a rapid,
and accurate imaging technique for the identification of normal and abnormal...
Imaging findings OR Procedure details
Tecnique MR cholangiopancreatography was performed on a 1.5-T unit (Avanto; Siemens,
Germany) with the following sequences Steady-state free precession (SSFP) imaging Axial freebreathing half-Fourier acquisition single-shot turbo spin-echo (HASTE) sequence Free-breathing 3D high-spatial-resolution fast spin-echo sequence 3D interpolated fat-suppressed spoiled mangafodipir trisodium-enhanced excretory MR Normal findings We show normal findings after cholecystectomy, hepatic...
MR cholangiopancreatography is a safe and effective method for assessing postoperative alterations in the biliary tract. Knowledge of normal post-operative changes is fundamental to perform a good MR exam MRCP is useful to delineate the bilio-enteric anastomoses and to identify the complications. Precious in delineating biliary anastomoses in patients receiving Ortothopic Liver Transplantation MR cholangiopancreatography is irreplaceable also can be used postoperatively to detect isolated...
