Specific and non-specific signs of chronic pancreatitis, pseudocyst, pancreatic tumor and pancreatic emergencies are analyzed in a series of 100 cases of surgically controlled pancreatic disease studied with CT. The CT results are compared with those obtained with other radiological methods (plain film of the abdomen; upper G. I. tract examination; cholangiography; ERCP; angiography), in order to define the role of CT in the diagnostic protocol of pancreatic disease. The authors conclude from their personal experience that CT in pancreatic disease has provided a substantial improvement in diagnostic possibilities and has found its specific position in the diagnostic protocol.
