  • Multidetector-row CT and volumetric imaging of pancreatic neoplasms GASTROENTEROLOGY CLINICS OF NORTH AMERICA Nino-Murcia, M., Jeffrey, R. B. 2002; 31 (3): 881-?


    Multidetector-row CT provides excellent visualization of the pancreas and peripancreatic structures, yielding information that is crucial for detecting pancreatic neoplasms and accurately determining their staging. This new technology enables the acquisition of large volumetric data sets to create high-quality curved planar reformations that clearly depict the common bile duct, the pancreatic duct, and the peripancreatic vasculature. Additionally, curved planar reformations highlight critical anatomic and pathologic relationships which are useful for surgical planning in patients with resectable disease.
