OBJECTIVES To evaluate the role of computed tomography (CT) perfusion in detection of pancreatic necrosis and pancreatitis after endoscopic ultrasound-guided ethanol ablation of porcine pancreas and to correlate the evaluation with histopathology. METHODS Under endoscopic ultrasound guidance, 0.9% saline (control) and ethanol at 60%, 80%, and 100% concentrations were injected into the pancreatic tails of 4 pigs. On day 4, dynamic perfusion CT of the pancreas was performed. Perfusion analysis… CONTINUE READING
