Premium pineapple juice, water, orange juice, cheap hospital pineapple juice. 

Case Discussion

Negative oral contrast to 'null' the duodenum during MRCP:

  • commercially available agents
  • natural  products such as pineapple juice which is rich in manganese and shortens T2 relaxation time

The test image demonstrates the T2 signal intensity of pineapple juice when compared to water and orange juice.
