Abstract

Computed tomography (CT) is the most commonly performed imaging test for acute pancreatitis. Nevertheless, magnetic resonance (MRI) imaging is useful in many specific situations. These include evaluating patients with acute pancreatitis who cannot receive iodinated CT contrast, elucidating the underlying cause of acute pancreatitis, assessing ductal disconnection and for guiding intervention of necrotic collections. Non-contrast MRI is superior to non-contrast CT and MRI for the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis. We discuss these specific uses of MRI in acute pancreatitis. We highlight the future advances in MRI including faster, free-breathing scans that allow MRI to be completed within 10 min.
