PURPOSE To prospectively correlate multidetector computed tomographic (CT) perfusion measurement of pancreatic endocrine tumors with tumor microvascular density (MVD) assessed by using histologic techniques and to determine whether perfusion CT parameters differ between tumor grades. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval and informed consent were obtained. Thirty-six patients (15 men, 21 women; mean age, 53 years; range, 18-78 years) with resectable pancreatic endocrine… CONTINUE READING
