A person should bring their written order for an MRCP scan with them to the procedure. A person should remove anything made of metal, including clothing with metal snaps or zippers, and all electronics before the exam. People with certain types of medical implant should not get an MRCP without checking first with a doctor.How much does a MRCP test cost?
The MRCP test can range anywhere from as little as $300 to as much as $1,500 without any insurance. This National Center for Biotechnology Information study had noted the costs, outside of the UK, were $356 for two to three areas, with contrast, on an outpatient basis.Does MRCP use contrast?
Unlike conventional endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), MRCP does not require contrast material to be administered into the ductal system. Thus, the morbidity associated with endoscopic procedures and contrast materials is avoided.
