Abstract

Diagonstic imaging plays a critical role in evaluation of the adenocarcinoma of the pancreas- the 4th leading cause of death for the cancer globally. The purpose of this study was to determine the role of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) in evaluation of pancreatic tumors. The prospective and study was carried out in Dhaka, Bangladesh during the period of July, 2013 to December 2014. Amongst 47 publish with suspected pancreatic lesion (having positive CT scan findings). Patients underwent histopathology of their lesions, the report of which was used as gold standard for comparing the role of CT scan in evaluating such lesions. Pancreatic disease was found to be more prevalent in males. The commonest age group was 56-65 years. On the average malignant lesions were more common in elder age group than the benign ones. Head of the pancreas was the commonest site for malignant pancreatic mass.  Main pancreatic duct (MPD) dilatation was found to be a harbinger for malignant condition of pancreas. 72.3% patients showed MPD dilatation most of which proved to be malignant. Some 45% patients showed common bile duct (CBD) dilatation all of which presented clinically with jaundice. Out of 47 patients 33 (60.3%) were diagnosed to have malignant lesions while 14 (39.7%) had benign lesions. Finding of the study suggest that CT scan may be a useful tool for assessing and changing of Parcrease mass lesions.
