ABSTRACT
Presents a study which compared dual-phase computed tomography (CT) and endosonography for the diagnosis and staging of pancreatic tumors. Use of transgastric and transduodenal approaches to assess the entire pancreas, surrounding vessels and lymph nodes; Overall diagnostic sensitivity for dual-phase helical CT and endosonography; Advantages of CT examination compared to endoscopic sonography.

    Endoscopic ultrasound guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is now widely used as a primary tool in the evaluation of lymphadenopathy in both the mediastinum and abdomen. A sympathetic ganglion may be mistaken for an enlarged lymph node on endoscopic ultrasound and are rarely sampled as such....

    Background. We investigated the mode of progression of intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasm of the pancreas (IPMN) in patients who underwent follow-up in order to elucidate the characteristics of malignancy and to establish an effective treatment strategy. Methods. Fifty-one patients with...
