Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography MRCP is an MRI study which provides detailed images of the hepatobiliary and pancreatic systems.  The liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, pancreas and pancreatic duct are typically studied in an MRCP exam.  This non-invasive imaging study has replaced endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) which international guidelines recommend ERCP only in cases where biliary intervention is required
