Abstract

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is a common malignancy that has a poor prognosis. Imaging is vital in its detection, staging, and management. Although a variety of imaging techniques are available, MDCT is the preferred imaging modality for staging and assessing the resectability of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. MR also has an important adjunct role, and may be used in addition to CT or as a problem-solving tool. A dedicated pancreatic protocol should be acquired as a biphasic technique optimized for the detection of pancreatic adenocarcinoma and to allow accurate local and distant disease staging. Emerging techniques like dual-energy CT and texture analysis of CT and MR images have a great potential in improving lesion detection, characterization, and treatment monitoring.
