We reported a case of asymptomatic pancreatic AVM, incidentally found on routine ultrasonography and diagnosed noninvasively by means of Doppler ultrasonography and MRI. The diagnosis was confirmed by angiography. This is the first report to demonstrate the characteristics of pancreatic AVM by these two imaging techniques. They proved to be useful in identifying the vascular nature of AVM without the use of a contrast material, which is a definite advantage over DSA and CT. The quality of the… CONTINUE READING
