Abstract

MR cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) may replace direct pancreatography in the evaluation of the pancreatic duct. The aim of this pictorial review is to demonstrate the usefulness of MRCP in the evaluation of pancreatic duct pathology. The examination technique included coronal, sagittal and axial breath-hold HASTE 2D imaging using a body phase array coil. We present the diagnostic features on MRCP of a variety of benign and malignant disorders of the pancreatic duct, and conclude that MRCP is a suitable method for imaging the pancreatic duct system.

Cajal Bodies & Gems

Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.
