The effect of butylscopolamine (Buscopan) on image quality for MR cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) examinations is examined in our study. The inferior common bile duct demonstrated improved visualization after the administration of butylscopolamine whilst other ductal segments demonstrated minimal benefit. The use of butylscopolamine in patients with suspected inferior common bile duct disease improves image quality and thus may improve diagnosis.
