This is an update to a recently asked question I posted, about how many people have had an MRI/MRCP of the liver. I had difficulty taking the MRCP because of having to hold your breath for 30 seconds, over & over, & repeating this 15 times. My hepatologist then calls to say the test looked fine, however some of the pictures were fuzzy, so he wants me to repeat the MRCP again in 6 months. Today I talked to his nurse & asked her why can't I just have the liver ultrasound. I told her that unless he can give me a very valid reason, I am not going to take the MRC again. She then says that although he thinks its unlikely, he wants to rule out PSC overlap, since there were some bile duct irregularities in the last MRCP. So now, I guess I have something more to worry about.
