Abstract

Title of the article: Role of MRCP in diagnosis of bile duct disorders in correlation with ERCP. Aim: To determine the specificity, sensitivity and accuracy of MRCP as compared to ERCP for evaluating bile duct disorders. Patients and methods: From October 2012 to May 2015, 100 patients with suspected biliary pathology were included in this observational study. MRCP was performed prior to ERCP in all the patients included in this study. Results:MRCP had 97 % sensitivity, 100%specificity, 100% positive predictive value (PPV), 88% negative predictive value (NPV). MRCP had a low positive predictive value for the diagnosis of biliary strictures. For diagnosis of periampullary lesions MRCP had a sensitivity of 86 %, specificity of 99%, PPV of 83%, NPV of 99%. Conclusion: MRCP should be preferred over diagnostic ERCP for the assessment of biliary pathologies.
