|MRI and MRCP features of chronic pancreatitis associated with pancreas divisum abnormality: a correlation with patient age|
Methods and materials
This is an IRB-approved retrospective study.
We reviewed 86 patients (41 male and 45 female, aged 16-85 years; mean age 53 years) with PD and symptomatic chronic pancreatitis who underwent MRI and MRCP at our institution between January 2013 and December 2016.
Patients were stratified by age in three groups: <40 years (26 patients; M:16, F:10), 41-60 years (27 patients; M:11, F:16 ), >60 years (33 patients; M:14, F:19).
Two readers in consensus evaluated the following parenchymal features: thickness of the organ, regularity of the margins, signal intensity on T1-FS images, and enhancement.
The readers also assessed ductal changes: irregularity of the main pancreatic duct (MPD), dilation/stricture of the MPD, branch-ducts dilation and filling defects.
All MRI features were compared across age groups by using Chi-square test.
