The prevalence of pancreatic cystic lesions has been estimated to range from 2.4% to 24% in imaging and autopsy studies. Incidental pancreatic lesions are usually identified on a routine CT scan performed for other reasons. Such lesions may be benign or may hide a malignant disease. Accordingly, although difficult and not always exhaustive, an accurate imaging work-up is often needed in order to highlight features (fluid, hemorrhage, septa, enhancing soft-tissue components) being important for addressing a diagnosis.
