Abstract

The diagnosis of hemobilia by non invasive magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) can be diffi cult to interpret due to the technical procedures involved, surrounding tissue, respiratory artifacts and other factors. On many occasions, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is attempted before MRCP. We presented a case of hemobilia identifi ed using two dimension (2D) and three dimension (3D) MRCP fi ndings to inform the physician in cases when ERCP alone cannot predict this condition.
