Contents Normal pancreas and fine needle aspiration contaminants -- Radiologic characteristics of pancreatic disease -- Nonneoplastic lesions -- Solid neoplasms : exocrine pancreas -- Cystic neoplasms -- Solid neoplasms : endocrine pancreas -- Primary mesenchymal and other rare neoplasms -- Metastatic and secondary neoplasms
Summary Clinical and radiologic examinations cannot reliably distinguish benign or inflammatory pancreatic disease from carcinoma. The increased use of pancreatic fine needle aspiration (FNA) along with advances in imaging techniques and the introduction of endoscopic ultrasound guidance have led to significantly better detection and recognition of pancreatic masses. Consequently, pancreatic cytopathology is integral to accurate pre-operative diagnosisyet it is a challenging diagnostic area with a variety of potential pitfalls and look-alike lesions
