Juxtapapillary diverticulum: findings on MRI.

The purpose of our study was to describe the imaging findings of juxtapapillary diverticulum on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The MRI and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) examinations of 14 patients with juxtapapillary diverticula that were diagnosed on endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) (N = 8) or endoscopy (N = 6) were retrospectively evaluated. T1-weighted spoiled gradient-echo, T2-weighted half Fourier single shot fast spin-echo (HASTE), and T2-weighted True FISP (fast imaging with steady state precession) images and thin-slice MRCP images were obtained on all patients. In five patients, diluted gadolinium DPTA (1/100) was used as an oral contrast. T2-weighted True FISP and HASTE images demonstrated air-fluid levels within all diverticula. Hyperintense oral contrast on T1-weighted spoiled gradient-echo images aided detection of the smaller diverticula. MRCP images obtained in the coronal plane best demonstrated the relationship of the diverticula to the papilla. MRI with the use of HASTE, True FISP, and oral contrast-enhanced T1-weighted sequences was able to depict juxtapapillary diverticula in our series.
