MRCP+ uses advanced image processing techniques to enhance and qualitatively characterize MRCP data.
The technology can enhance the data from conventional MRCP without needing to inject contrast agent, enabling 3D visualization of ducts.
MRCP+ calculates quantitative 3D biliary system models that enable measurement of bile duct widths and automatic detection of regions of variation of duct widths. MRCP+ includes tools for interactive segmentation and labeling of the biliary system and structures. It allows for regional volumetric analysis of the biliary tree, pancreatic duct, and gallbladder.
Combining image viewing, processing, and reporting tools, the metrics provided are designed to support physicians in the visualization, evaluation, and reporting of hepatobiliary structures.
