  • With increasing prevalence over the years and growing treatment opportunities, recognizing the spectrum of imaging findings of AP and complications is crucial.

  • Pancreaticobiliary ductal anomalies are the most common cause of AP in children for whom the MRCP were performed.
  • Initial US has no findings in more than half of the patients (59.5 %) at the time of the onset of AP
  • CT is more sensitive than US for the diagnosis of AP; however, it has limited potential for evaluation of biliary ductal system which are the most common cause of AP. Moreover, radiation exposure limits its usage for severe disease and complications.
  • We suggest that, MR/MRCP should be preferred as a second option, when initial US is inconclusive, with the advantages of biliary ductal system delineation and better characterization of peripancreatic fluid collections.
