BACKGROUND Despite more recent technical advances, single detector spiral computed tomography is still the most widely used imaging technique for the detection and staging of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Many reports have recently focused on single detector spiral computed tomography imaging findings indicative of unresectability AIM To evaluate the ability of single detector spiral computed tomography in the pre-operative staging of ductal adenocarcinoma of the pancreas in selecting surgically… CONTINUE READING
