|CT and MRI assessment of pancreatic cystic lesions|
Imaging findings OR Procedure details
T1/ T2-weighted MR image, MRCP reconstruction and MDCT scans are routinely used. MRI has proved superior to CT in pseudocysts definition. On the contrary, MDCT seems sufficient while defining mucinous neoplasm showing enhancing mural nodules. Serous cystic neoplasms showing T2 iperintensity and signal void due the calcifications may be equally studied by means of CT or MRI. In the end, secretin-enhanced MRI proved to be superior than MDCT while studying IPMNs, originating both from main or secondary ducts.
