Radiologic findings of Mirizzi syndrome with emphasis on MRI



Radiologic findings of Mirizzi syndrome with emphasis on MRI



Yonsei Medical Journal 41(1): 144-146



We have reported a case of Mirizzi syndrome preoperatively diagnosed using MR cholangiopancreatography. MRCP and T2-weighted image using a single-shot fast spin-echo sequence accurately depicted all components of Mirizzi syndrome, including impacted stone in the neck of the gallbladder compressing the common hepatic duct and wall-thickening of the gallbladder without any evidence of malignancy. The combination of MRCP and T2-weighted image can be counted on to replace conventional modalities of diagnosing Mirizzi syndrome without any loss of diagnostic accuracy.
