RADIOLOGY: PANCREAS: Case# 33083: NECROTIZING PANCREATITIS. This is a 57-year-old male with history of pancreatitis. 1. Necrotizing pancreatitis with organizing fluid collection much better defined than on the previous scan. This is consistent with evolving necrotizing pancreatitis. The most superior portion of this fluid collection is against the inferior wall of the stomach which would facillitate drainage with a transgastric stent. 2. No free intraperitoneal fluid or nodal disease is identified. 3. Three simple cysts in the right kidney. 4. Improved pleural effusion on the left.
