Abstract

ABSTRACT: This is the third in a series of medical graphics articles featuring the arterial anatomy of the pancreas as depicted on segmented computed tomography-angiography. These segmented computed tomography-angiography displays serve as a road map of the routes of tumor spread by ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas because perineural tumor invasion parallels the pancreatic arteries.
