I recently had an MRI & MRCP of the liver. I had a big problem with the MRCP & had to go back the next day to finish the test. I was unable to finish because you are asked to hold your breath for 30 seconds, exhale slowly, then inhale deeply again, hold 30 seconds, exhale, etc. This had to be done back to back, consecutively, over & over. After doing this 14 times, I was exhausted, out of breath & my chest hurt. I could not continue, therefore, I had to come back the next morning to finish, another dozen reps of this. Has anyone else had the MRCP & if so, were you able to perform all 24 reps of the breathing thing?? Just wondering.....
