|Pancreatic calcifications: spectrum of causes and differential diagnosis in CT-imaging.|
Pancreatic calcifications are most commonly associated with chronic pancreatitis related to alcohol abuse.
Several other pathologic entities, however, can cause pancreatic calcifications. Awareness of these entities and their classic features is important in making the correct diagnosis and guiding proper management.
Today, because of the widespread use of imaging, including sonography, MR and in particularly CT imaging, pancreatic calcifications and their underlying cause are being detected more frequently.
