Objective To evaluate diagnostic performance of 64-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) for differentiating the benign from malignant ampullary lesion. Material and Method A retrospective study was performed in 55 patients with obstructive jaundice from distal common bile duct (CBD) obstruction as a result of ampullary lesion underwent 64-slice MDCT. The patients were enrolled between February 2007 and August 2014. The patients’ MDCT scans of abdomen were retrospectively evaluated… CONTINUE READING
