Pancreas (Clinical)

Introduction

The imaging of the pancreas is an important task for radiologists, due to the difficulties in the management of benign pancreatic conditions, such as chronic pancreatitis, or the aggressivity of malignant pancreatic diseases, such as ductal adenocarcinoma. Moreover, some benign and malignant conditions can overlap in the imaging presentation.
The function of imaging is to discriminate benign from malignant conditions, giving an fundamental support to clinicians in the management of these patients. Thanks to non-invasive imaging techniques, from simple to very advanced, it is possible to obtain both morphological and functional information, which can lead to the correct diagnosis.

Aims

The aim of the workshop is to provide a comprehensive coverage of all the main pancreatic pathologies that will be presented by means of an integrated multimodality approach. A set of lectures on imaging modalities will explain the most up-to-date techniques and protocols in the imaging of the pancreas. The format of the workshop will include formal lectures assigned to expert colleagues. Moreover, an interactive discussion on real clinical cases will be led — in additional “slots” — by the faculty members who will help to define the state-of-the-art in the diagnosis of pancreatic diseases as well as how to manage the diagnostic work-up of pancreatic diseases in the daily practice.

Target group

Radiologists, radiologists in training

Learning Objectives

  • To provide state-of-the-art imaging protocols for US, CEUS, MDCT and MRI
  • To detail the most relevant clinical questions that radiologists need to know when assessing patients with inflammatory pancreatic diseasesTo review imaging features of inflammatory pancreatic diseases and how to use imaging modalities appropriately
  • To detail the most relevant pathology findings that may help understand imaging signs of malignancy in solid and cystic tumours
  • To review imaging features and pitfalls in interpretation of pancreatic adenocarcinoma and to understand the relative role of imaging modalities available for staging
  • To describe radiological features of tumour recurrence including common pitfalls and to learn which modern imaging techniques are most useful for follow-up of pancreatic adenocarcinoma
  • To describe imaging features and differential diagnosis of cystic pancreatic lesions and to explain how patients with cystic pancreatic lesions should be managed and followed-up.
  • To provide interactive discussions based on clinical cases that may help in daily practice
