|Title:||CT of blunt pancreatic trauma-A pictorial essay||Authors:||Venkatesh, S.K.
|Issue Date:||2008||Citation:||Venkatesh, S.K., Wan, J.M.C. (2008). CT of blunt pancreatic trauma-A pictorial essay. European Journal of Radiology 67 (2) : 311-320. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Blunt trauma to pancreas is uncommon and clinical features are often non-specific and unreliable leading to possible delays in diagnosis and therefore increased morbidity. CT has been established as the imaging modality of choice for the diagnosis of abdominal solid-organ injury in the blunt trauma patient. The introduction of multidetector-row CT allows for high resolution scans and multiplanar reformations that improve diagnosis. Detection of pancreatic injuries on CT requires knowledge of the subtle changes produced by pancreatic injury. The CT appearance of pancreatic injury ranges from a normal initial appearance of the pancreas to active pancreatic bleeding. Knowledge of CT signs of pancreatic trauma and a high index of suspicion is required in diagnosing pancreatic injury. © 2007 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
