Three-dimensional imaging for hepatobiliary and pancreatic diseases: Emphasis on clinical utility.

Kim SJ, Choi BI, Kim SH, Lee JY - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2009)

Bottom Line: Three-dimensional (3D) imaging allows disease processes and anatomy to be better understood, both by radiologists as well as physicians and surgeons. 3D imaging can be performed with USG, CT scan and MRI, using different modes or rendering that include surface-shaded display, volume-based rendering, multiplanar imaging, etc.All these techniques are used variably depending on the indications.

A 67-year-old woman with hilar cholangiocarcinoma, Bismuth type IIIa. 2D thick section RARE MRC (A) demonstrates abrupt narrowing of the proximal CHD and bilateral IHD dilatation. Both secondary confluences are not well-depicted. Navigator-triggered isotropic 3D RARE MRC (B) reveals involvement of the left secondary confluence (arrow). The ovarall image quality of the 3D MRC is better than that of the 2D MRC. RARE: rapid acquisition with relaxation enhancement MRC: magnetic resonance cholangiography CHD: common hepatic duct IHD: intrahepatic duct

Mentions: Many studies have shown that MRI cholangiography (MRC), using T2W TSE or HASTE sequences, can clearly depict the biliary anatomy, but cannot show all biliary anomalies due to the limited resolution and 2D character of these sequences.[27] However, even though 3D MRC may provide superior image quality as compared to 2D MRC for the evaluation of the extent of disease in malignant biliary obstructions, there has been no statistically significant difference in accuracy[28] [Figures 16 and 17].
