Dr. Naveen Kumar and Dr. Shruthi GT
AP can be diagnosed either by clinical, laboratory, or image findings. For an appropriate diagnosis of AP, at least two of the following criteria to be fulfilled. In majority of cases, the disease is self-limiting and presents with response to supportive treatment alone. The assessment of the severity of AP has a significant role in management. All male and female patients with complaints of abdominal pain (epigastric pain), vomiting with raised serum amylase & lipase levels and who underwent contrast enhanced MDCT during study period were study subjects. MDCT being a useful, non-invasive, accurate investigative tool in confirming the clinical diagnosis of acute pancreatitis and grading of AP as mild (grade 2 and grade 4), moderate (grade 6) and severe (grade 8 and 10) contrary to other previous studies which classified it into mild (grade 2), moderate (grade 4 and grade 6) and severe (grade 8 and 10) on the basis of MCTSI scoring index.
