  • Figure 1
    Transabdominal USG

    Ultrasound demonstrates a well defined hypoechoic lesion in the neck-body junction of the pancreas.

     
    Area of Interest: Pancreas; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Axial contrast-enhanced CT

    Axial contrast-enhanced CT showing hypodense lesion at the neck-body junction of the pancreas with fat attenuation (-100HU).

     
    Area of Interest: Pancreas; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Computer Applications-Detection, diagnosis; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Axial T1-weighted image

    Axial T1-weighted MRI shows a well-defined mass lesion with uniform hyperintense signal similar to adjacent retroperitoneal and omental fat.

     
    Area of Interest: Pancreas; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Axial T2-weighted image

    Axial T2-weighted MRI shows the fat signal intensity mass lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: Pancreas; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Axial STIR image

    Axial STIR image shows complete loss of signal within the lesion confirming the presence of fat.

     
    Area of Interest: Abdomen; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
