The addition of Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced 3D T1w-MRC to 3D T2w-MRC improves second-order bile duct visualization and increases the confidence in biliary anatomy diagnosis and the accuracy in the imaging-predicted number of duct orifices acquired during right lobe harvesting.
• Some B-IPMNs manifest thread sign within the bile ducts on MRI. • Thread sign is a highly specific finding for B-IPMN on MRI. • MRC is superior to axial T2WI and DWI for detecting thread sign.

Biliary adverse events following orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) are relatively common and continue to be serious causes of morbidity, mortality, and transplant dysfunction or failure. The development of these adverse events is heavily influenced by the type of anastomosis during surgery. The low specificity of clinical and biologic findings...

A biloma is a rare disease characterized by an abnormal intra- or extrahepatic bile collection due to a traumatic or spontaneous rupture of the biliary system. Laboratory findings are nonspecific. The diagnosis is usually suspected on the basis of a typical history (right upper quadrant abdominal pain, chills, fever and recent abdominal trauma or s...
Progressive destruction of bile ducts in primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) may lead to end-stage liver disease, portal hypertension and liver failure. The diagnosis of PSC is made by characteristic multifocal stricturing and dilation of intrahepatic and/or extrahepatic bile ducts observed by cholangiography. Magnetic resonance cholangiography is...
