Evaluation of pancreatic cysts in patients: A Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography study
Dr. Vipin Chaudhary
Background: Cystic lesions of the pancreas are closed cavities containing liquid or semisolid material. The present study was conducted to assess pancreatic cysts in patients. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted 103 patients visited to department with suspected lesions of pancreas. All were subjected to magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) using using a 1.5 Tesla Magnetom Avanto (Siemens Healthcare, Erlangen, Germany) with a 280 mT/m gradient. Results: Age group 10-20 years had 22, 20-30 had 35, 30-40 had 20, 40-50 had 14 and >50 years had 12 patients. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Out of 103 patients, 54 (52.4%) had pancreatic cysts. Common risk factors were alcohol seen in 24, smoking in 26, diabetes in 34 and positive family history in 12. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion: Authors found that 52.4% had prevalence of pancreatic cysts. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is effective method of diagnosing pancreatic cysts.
