RADIOLOGY: PANCREAS: Case# 33120: SMALL PANCREATIC CA. 72 year old male referred from an outside hospital for evaluation of jaundice, weight loss, decreased appetite and abdominal pain. The patient presents with puritis and blurred vision. 1) Intra and extrahepatic biliary ductal dilatation as well as pancreatic ductal dilatation is seen and extends down to the head of the pancreas where both ducts terminate into a pancreatic head mass. These findings are consistent with pancreatic carcinoma. The SMV and SMA do not appear involved. The single portocaval node is present as described above. No other evidence for metastatic disease is present.
