Abstract

Advances in MR imaging with optimization of hardware, software, and techniques have allowed for an increased role of MR in the identification and characterization of pancreatic disorders. Diffusion-weighted imaging improves the detection and staging of pancreatic neoplasms and aides in the evaluation of acute, chronic and autoimmune pancreatitis. The use of secretin-enhanced MR cholangiography improves the detection of morphologic ductal anomalies, and assists in the characterization of pancreatic cystic lesions and evaluation of acute and chronic pancreatitis. Emerging MR techniques such as MR perfusion, T1 mapping/relaxometry, and MR elastography show promise in further evaluating pancreatic diseases.
