  • Figure 1
    Axial CT

    CT image shows a large, apparently capsulated mass, with inhomogeneous content with semifluid areas and solid ones.

     
    Area of Interest: Pancreas; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Enhanced CT in portal phase.

    The mass presents poor contrast-enhancement. It appeared not cleavable from the pancreatic tail and displaces the abdominal structures and vessels without signs of local infiltration.

     
    Area of Interest: Pancreas; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Contrast agent-intravenous; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Enhanced CT in coronal plane

    The vessels, displaced laterally, are well-depicted on MIP (maximum intensity projection) reconstruction.
