  • Pictorial essay - Dual-phase helical CT of locally invasive pancreatic adenocarcinoma JOURNAL OF COMPUTER ASSISTED TOMOGRAPHY Nino-Murcia, M., Olcott, E. W., Jeffrey, R. B. 1998; 22 (2): 282-287


    Dual-phase helical CT permits imaging of the pancreas and the peripancreatic structures in the arterial dominant and portal venous phases of enhancement, providing information crucial in the assessment of the local extent of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. This essay reviews the dual-phase helical CT findings of local extension that preclude potentially curative surgery, including vascular involvement, ligamentous or mesenteric invasion, extension of the tumor to involve the stomach or duodenum, and invasion of adjacent solid organs.
