Diagnosis of Acute Pancreatitis The diagnosis of acute pancreatitis requires two of the following three features: Gall stone disease was most common aetiological factor seen; it was more common in females than males.

A recent study by Irshad Ahmad Banday et al. The previous statement was carried out in all of our patients. Data analysis was done using SPSS version Axial CT image of abdomen reveals normal anatomy of Pancreas arrows. The collection underwent successful percutaneous drainage, which showed clear fluid with high amylase and subsequently resolved along with the patient’s symptoms.


The images are of a patient with acute pancreatitis.

The computed tomography CT is recommended as the standard image diagnosis method for AP Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: The morphological classification according to Revised Atlanta classification. In terms of organ failure and development of pancreatic necrosis, the most severe acute pancreatitis happen at the E Balthazar degree 1,2.

Fifty per cent of the patients had acute severe pancreatitis according to claeificacion Atlanta criteria. In these cases MRI can be of additional value. The age average was Central gland necrosis is a specific form of necrotizing pancreatitis, representing full thickness necrosis between the pancreatic head and tail and is nearly always associated with disruption of the pancreatic duct.

Central gland necrosis Central gland necrosis is a specific form of necrotizing pancreatitis, representing full thickness necrosis between the pancreatic head and tail and is nearly always associated with disruption of the pancreatic duct. Their findings were on the lower side as baltthazar to this study. Edit article Share article View revision history. This patient died on day 5 due to severe SIRS and multiple organ failure.

A T2-weighted MRI sequence shows that the collection has a low signal intensity arrow.

CT Evaluation of Acute Pancreatitis and its Prognostic Correlation with CT Severity Index

CT CT is the imaging modality of choice for the clasificcacion and staging of acute pancreatitis and its complications. On this study clasifidacion found that in our hospital service we have a low frequency of the disease. Based on CT alone it is sometimes impossible to determine whether a collection contains fluid only or a mixture of fluid and necrotic tissue. For a better determination of the disease’s severity, it must be performed 2 to 3 days after the beginning of the symptoms.
