We evaluated 64 patients affected by ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic head/uncinate process, submitted to curative surgery. Suspicion of infiltration (micro or macroinfiltration) of the retroportal margin arose at MDCT in cases of obliteration, irregularity, or abnormal density of the… CONTINUE READING
