Pancreatic cysts are increasingly being identified by cross-sectional imaging studies. Pancreatic cystic lesions comprise a spectrum of underlying pathologies ranging from benign and pre-malignant lesions to frank malignancies. Magnetic resonance imaging with cholangiopancreatography is a non-invasive imaging modality used for the characterization of cystic pancreatic lesions. This article will review the most common pancreatic cystic neoplasms and the utility of MR imaging in the characterization of these cysts.
