Abstract

Multidetector CT (MDCT) has gained a great role in clinical imaging practice in a short time. Its major advantages are faster image acquisition and improved z-axis resolution. In spite of the advent of other imaging modalities CT is still the gold standard for the evaluation of pancreatic pathology. In this article, a review of the utility of MDCT in pancreatic applications is given with emphasis on acquisition techniques tailored to contrast material pharmacokinetics to improve lesion detection and characterization.
