Never heard of a MRSP scan, but there is a MRCP scan. That is Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP). It's a test for detecting abnormalities of the pancreaticobiliary system.


Be well,

Bob :)

MRCP scan is used for patients that are at low risk of having pancreatic of biliary disease. No patient preparation is required for MRCP and sedation is not usually required. If the physician does not concludsive evidence, then he will probably order a ERCP scan. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. There is some prep for this scan, no eating or drinking of anything midnight the night before the test. Medication will be given to numb the back of the throat and a sedation to help you relax during the exam.

Hope this is helpful
