As the most common pancreatic ductal anatomic variant, in the present study, we hypothesized that there might be an association between the PD and the biliary duct variation due to their closely related embryologic origin. We, therefore, aimed to investigate whether the PD was associated with the biliary branching variations more frequently and to document the prevalence of each type of anatomic variations at the hepatic confluence using MRCP.
