The pancreas is a retroperitoneal organ situated deep within the abdomen and not easily accessible by physical examination pancreatic pathologies have a variety of presentations which make their diagnosis challenging to physicians 1 imaging plays a critical role in the evaluation of pancreatic diseases and provides valuable information to clinicians thereby dictating crucial management . Pancreatic imaging is an essential tool in the early diagnosis and staging of pancreatic disease the diagnosis of pancreatic diseases generally requires the combined use of different imaging modalities allowing the evaluation of pancreatic ducts the pancreatic parenchyma and adjacent soft tissues. Imaging of the pancreas fig 51 dynamic contrast enhanced ct is the mainstay of imaging in suspected traumatic pancreatic injury this modality is the preferred guidance method for percutaneous needle biopsy of pancreatic masses and for aspiration or percutaneous drainage of pancreatic collections. Radiology of the pancreas discusses the diagnostic role of the various imaging modalities currently available for the assessment of pancreatic anatomy and disease in comparison with the first edition new technical developments helical ct ultrafast magnetic resonance imaging color doppler ultrasound laparoscopic ultrasound have been included and several chapters have been significantly . As a result they less frequently present with biliary obstruction which is a classic mode of presentation for pancreatic adenocarcinomas endocrine tumors of the pancreas show peak contrast enhancement in the early arterial phase 25 35 s rather than in late arterial phase 35 45 s which is normally used for pancreatic imaging
