female, 61 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    MRI upper abdomen

    Spoiled gradient echo fat suppressed T1-weighted axial MRI section (TR 122/TE 4,8) demonstrating a normal in size and shape pancreatic head.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MRI upper abdomen;

    MRCP
     

    Projectional single shot turbo spin echo MRCP with a 6 cm slab thickness. The pancreatic and common bile duct are crossing over at the head of the pancreas and end in separate points of the duodenum.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MRCP;

    Projectional single shot turbo spin echo MRCP with a 3 cm slab thickness. 2B is slightly more oblique than 2A.The pancreatic and common bile duct have separate entries into the duodenum. The ventral duct is thin and...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: MRCP;

    Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP) reconstruction from multislice HASTE presenting the same findings as in 2a.

Projectional single shot turbo spin echo MRCP with a 3 cm slab thickness. 2B is slightly more oblique than 2A.The pancreatic and common bile duct have separate entries into the duodenum. The ventral duct is thin and short and it is barely seen in the head of the pancreas.
