Chronic Pancreatitis: What the Clinician Wants to Know from MR Imaging

Abstract

Diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis requires a complete medical history and clinical investigations, including imaging technologies and function tests. MR imaging/magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography is the preferred diagnostic tool for detection of ductal and parenchymal changes in patients with chronic pancreatitis. Ductal changes may not be present in the initial phase of chronic pancreatitis. Therefore, early diagnosis remains challenging.
