Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging is useful for evaluating pancreaticobiliary diseases in children after initial sonography, obviating the use of ionizing radiation or invasive procedures such as endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) or transhepatic biliary procedures. Advanced MRI applications have improved depiction of pediatric pancreaticobiliary anatomy and have greatly impacted management of biliary and pancreatic diseases in children. In this article, we review current MRI and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) techniques and discuss their role in the assessment of common pancreatic and biliary disorders in children.
