The Radiology Assistant : Pancreas – Acute Pancreatitis

The Balthazar CTSI was clasifficacion by adding the above points in each case and the total score was then categorized as:. Atlanta Classification of Fluid Collections The Revised Atlanta Classification discerns 4 types of peripancreatic fluid collections in acute pancreatitis depending on the content, degree claeificacion encapsulation and time.

Imaging of acute pancreatitis. Peripancreatic collections can be approached through the transhepatic red arrowtransgastric green arrow or transabdominal blue arrows route, but the preferred approach is to stay in the retroperitoneal compartment yellow arrows.

Avoid early drainage clasificackon collections and avoid introducing infection. This patient had central gland necrosis and now developed fever. Early severity stratification of acute pancreatitis is important to identify patients with the highest morbidity. There were no complications and the diagnosis of mild pancreatitis was made.

The characteristics of the patients that were included on the study are shown on table I. Same compartment as the pancreas. Continue with the next image. Late – after the first week Morphologic criteria based on CT findings combined with clinical parameters determine the care of the patient.

Definitive treatment may require distal pancreatectomy or long-term endoscopic drainage.

On day 5 this collection can be diagnosed as probable acute necrotic collection. Find articles by Rakesh Sharma.

It is characterized by a protracted clinical course, a high incidence of clasificacipn complications, and a high mortality rate. The images show a normally enhancing pancreas on day 1.

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

No necrosis was noted in patients with grade B pancreatitis. Not transgastric route for diagnosis only. These cases illustrate that at times CT cannot reliably differentiate between collections that consist of fluid only and those that clasificacino fluid and solid necrotic debris with or without infection. Most often, they occur in the lesser sac. As the patient’s condition worsened, a second CT was performed on day 3.


Because fat does not enhance on CT, the diagnosis of fat necrosis can be difficult. Most collections that persist after 4 weeks are walled-of-necrosis. clazificacion

Approximately half of the deaths happen during the first week due to multi-organ systemic failure Am Gastroenterol ; For a better determination of the disease’s severity, it must be performed 2 to 3 days after the beginning of the symptoms.

Balthazar E Case 2: The patient underwent surgery and the collection was found to consist of necrotic debris, which was not appreciated on CT, hence this was a walled-off-necrosis and not a pseudocyst. Edit article Share article View revision history. On day 1 there is enhancement of the pancreas and it just looks clasificacioon a mild interstitial pancreatitis. Edema in the peripancreatic fat yellow arrowconsistent with interstitial pancreatitis. An important consideration was the impossibility to correlate the tomographic finds with the serum concentration of reactive C proteins, which is considered until the present moment the clsaificacion prognosis indicator of AP.
