MR cholangiography has been developed for the noninvasive imaging of the biliary tracts of patients. MR cholangiography involves the use of a fast maximum intensity projection algorithm for volume rendering to construct projections from different angles which can be displayed in a cine loop with adjustable speed. A gradient-based surface rendering is also utilized to display volume data. The biliary tree can be tracked and analyzed using a semi-automated 3D tracking algorithm. Although this method requires more human interaction and takes longer time, the 3D structure of the biliary tree can be visualized very clearly.
