OBJECTIVE Our goal was to define the lesion enhancement characteristics of renal cell carcinoma metastases to the pancreas using three-phase helical CT. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thin-section three-phase contrast-enhanced CT scans of nine patients with renal cell carcinoma metastases to the pancreas were evaluated. The helical CT protocol included 3-mm collimation and a 2:1 pitch. Scans through the pancreas were obtained in three series beginning 25, 60, and 120 sec after the start of… CONTINUE READING
