Objectives Of Study: 1. To describe features of pancreaticobiliary diseases on MRCP. 2. Outlining the extent in terms of involvement of adjacent structures, vessels
and soft tissues. 
 3. To help in deciding further course of management. 4. To identify the anatomical variants. 
 5. To prove the Magnetic Resonance Cholangio-Pancreatography (MRCP) is
one of the best imaging modality for evaluation of pancreatico-biliary disease. Material And Methods:The present study was undertaken to evaluate the role of MRCP in evaluation of pancreaticobiliary diseases. The study will be done on patients presenting with features suggestive of pancreatico-biliary diseases attending the OPD or admitted in various wards of Krishna Rajendra hospital, Mysore attached to Mysore Medical College & Research Institute, Mysore. A total of 30 patients were included in our study. Result:Majority of patients in study population were males (60%) while 40% were females. The mean age of the study sample was 37.5 years and maximum numbers of cases were observed in age group of > 40 years. Majority of pathologies observed were benign 18(60%). Pancreatitis was the most common finding (33.3%) followed by Cholangiocarcinoma (20%), Choledocholithiasis (13.4%), Periampullary carcinoma (10%), Ca. Pancreas (6.7%) & Choledochal cyst (6.7%).Pancreatitis is common in males followed by Cholangiocarcinoma, which is common in both males & females.Both benign & malignant strictures have equal predominance. Both benign & malignant strictures are common in proximal CBD. Conclusion: MRCP is non-invasive, non-ionizing imaging method for evaluation of pancreatico-biliary anatomy and pathology. It is superior diagnostic modality in detection and characterization of pancreatico-biliary pathologies.
