OBJECTIVE :- To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy between USG & MRCP in the patients suspected of biliary and pancreatic pathology. MATERIAL & METHODS : Fifty patients attending the hospital of all age groups and both sexes, suspected of biliary and pancreatic pathology, were examined first by USG and followed by MRCP, and findings were correlated with ERCP and biopsy report. RESULTS :- Out of 50 patients 38 patients had biliary pathology and 12 patients had pancreatic pathology. Out of this, MRCP was 98 % accurate in diagnosis when results were compared in all cases. USG didn't help in case of CBD stricture, in evaluating Pancreatic duct into Chronic pancreatitis and in lower end of CBD pathology. CONCLUSION :- USG is the cheap and easily available modality so, it is the primary investigative modality for suspected patients of biliary and pancreatic pathology, but MRCP has high diagnostic value.
