Measuring the length of the right hepatic duct
The goal of this article is to compare the length of the right hepatic duct (RHD) measured on rotatory coronal 2D MR cholangiography (MRC), rotatory axial 2D MRC, and reconstructed 3D MRC.
- In living liver donors, RHD length influences the number of ductal openings.
- Coronal 2D MRC overestimates the RHD length than does axial 2D MRC.
- Adding axial 2D MRC to coronal 2D MRC may prevent overestimating RHD length.
