Abstract

Aim To evaluate the effectiveness of motion-sensitised driven-equilibrium (MSDE)-prepared balanced magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) in a gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA)-enhanced study compared to conventional T2-weighted MRCP. Materials and methods Fifteen patients (seven male and eight female patients) prospectively underwent conventional three-dimensional turbo spin-echo T2-weighted MRCP and MSDE-balanced MRCP using a 1.5 T MRI system after hepatobiliary phase image acquisition. For quantitative evaluation, the contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) of the common hepatic duct to liver tissue was calculated. For qualitative analysis, two radiologists evaluated the depiction of the biliary system and main pancreatic duct (MPD) using a scoring system. Signal suppression of the portal vein (PV) and hepatic vein (HV) on MSDE-balanced MRCP was also scored. Results MSDE-balanced MRCP showed significantly higher CNR than T2-weighted MRCP. For all biliary structures, the mean depiction scores of MSDE-balanced MRCP were significantly higher than those of T2-weighted MRCP, whereas the mean depiction score of MPD with MSDE-balanced MRCP was significantly lower than that of T2-weighted MRCP. Signal suppression of the PV and HV was thought to be clinically sufficient. Conclusions MSDE-balanced MRCP more clearly depicted biliary structures compared with T2-weighted MRCP in a Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced study. This sequence may be utilised for routine MRCP on Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MRI.
