ABSTRACT
The article reports that new guidelines for the management of asymptomatic neoplastic pancreatic cysts has been released by the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA). It states that the advancements in sensitive abdominal computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques, there has been an increase in incidental pancreatic cysts, and presents the various sites where abdominal imaging occurs including kidneys, adrenals and liver.
