female, 7 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    T2-weighted axial images of the liver
     

    There is dilatation of the common bile duct. Cystic duct and gallbladder appear normal.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: T2-weighted axial images of the liver;

  • Figure 2
    T1-weighted coronal sections of the liver
     

    The fusiform dilatation of the commonn duct can be better appreciated on this orientation. The relatively normal appearance of the intrahepatic ducts suggests a non-obstructing cause.

    Maximum intesity projection (MIP)
     

    MRCP clearly outlines the biliary tree.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Maximum intesity projection (MIP);

    Change of calibre is seen in the distal portion of the duct. The pancreatic duct is not dilated.
