86 Possible Causes for Abnormal Pancreatic CT Scan

  • Pancreatic Abscess

    Risk assessment of acute pancreatitis (AP) depends upon clinical indices (eg, Ranson, Imrie, or Apache I/II Scores), the presence of extrapancreatic complications, an elevated C-reactive protein or hematocrit, an elevated procalcitonin, and the finding of pancreatic necrosis on CT scanning. The prognosis may be worse[…][]

  • Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

    While CT scan is better at evaluating for metastatic disease, EUS offers advantages for local staging (T, N).[] Imaging and investigations Diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is usually made by abdominal CT, which can visualise abnormal masses in the pancreas.[] EUS is a great modality for detecting small pancreatic cancer mass lesions that cannot be visualized on CT and it is superior at visualizing biliary and pancreatic ductal[]

  • Malignant Neoplasm of Pancreas

    Imaging and investigations Diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is usually made by abdominal CT, which can visualise abnormal masses in the pancreas.[] (B) A coronal CT scan of same “hypoattenuating” mass (yellow arrow) in the head of the pancreas.[] If pancreatic cancer is present, the likelihood of an ultrasound revealing an abnormality in the pancreas is about 75%.[]

  • Pancreatic Pseudocyst

    The authors present a PET/CT scan showing abnormal uptake of 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose-labeled autologous leukocytes in a pancreatic pseudocyst, from which aspirated fluid subsequently[] Additional tests may be ordered to accurately identify the pancreatic pseudocyst, including an abdominal ultrasound, an abdominal CT scan, or an abdominal MRI.[] Labeled leukocyte scintigraphy has been used as an indicator of pancreatic necrosis in patients with acute pancreatitis and proposed for the detection of infection in peripancreatic[]

  • Pancreatoblastoma

    Pancreatoblastomas are rare tumours, which usually occur in childhood. Here we describe a pancreatoblastoma in a 39-year-old woman. The tumour was located in the tail of the pancreas and consisted of cells forming well-differentiated acinar structures and scattered solid components ("squamoid corpuscles").[…][]

  • Glucagonoma

    Necrolytic migratory erythema (NME) is a rare skin disorder that is a cutaneous manifestation of the glucagonoma syndrome. It presents with annular eruptions of migrating erythematous papules and plaques with superficial epidermal necrosis, central flaccid bullae, and crusted erosions located primarily in the[…][]

  • Islet Cell Tumor

    Some of the following abnormalities may be detected on testing: an abdominal CT scan may reveal a pancreatic tumor (sometimes the tumor may be too small to see with a CT scan[] ) MRI of abdomen to show pancreatic tumor (MRI can sometimes see smaller tumors than those seen with a CT scan) abnormal glucose tolerance test low fasting glucose level elevated[]

  • Pancreatic Phlegmon

    CT scan; ERCP findings; pancreatic biopsy with US or CT guidance. DX: abd. pain, N&V, fever, tachycardia, elevated amylase & lipase, leukocytosis.[] (in 25% of pts), hyperbilirubinemia (in 10% of pts), transient elevation of LFT, decreased albumin, hypoxemia (in 25% of pts); ECG occasionally show ST-segment & T-wave abnormalities[]

  • VIPoma

    A VIPoma or vipoma ( ) is a rare endocrine tumor [1] that overproduces vasoactive intestinal peptide (thus VIP -oma ). The incidence is about 1 per 10,000,000 per year. VIPomas usually (about 90%) originate from the non-β islet cells of the pancreas. They are sometimes associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia[…][]

  • Insulinoma

    Selective arterial calcium stimulation (SACST) with hepatic venous sampling was performed in 5 patients (3 female, 2 male; age range, 53-73 y) with recurrent endogenous hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia caused by metastatic insulinoma between January 2004 and December 2014. The biochemical results of SACST confirmed[…][]
