Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MRCP and DWI using 3T MRI
MRCP and DWI using Magnetic resonance imaging(GE Signa,3.0 T )
Device: 3T MRI
diffusion weighted imaging(DWI) of biliary tract with GE Signa 3-tesla device
Experimental: MRCP only using 3T MRI
MRCP only using Magnetic resonance imaging(GE Signa,3.0 T )
Device: 3T MRI
diffusion weighted imaging(DWI) of biliary tract with GE Signa 3-tesla device

Detailed Description:
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the usefulness of diffusion weighted imaging(DWI) combined with MRCP of 3-T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the evaluation of suspected malignant bile duct diseases.People with suspected Biliary Tract Neoplasm based on clinical symptoms(such as jaundice and thinness with unknown reasons)and CA-199 value raises are included.Diagnosis divided into two steps: the first one,only provide conventional MR sequences and MRCP images to make a diagnosis; the second step,provide the DWI images additionally, combining the image data before to make a diagnosis.Hypothesis is that DWI sequence should be regularly added into MRCP examination for improving diagnosis rate of Biliary Tract Neoplasm.
