Abstract

The most common CT findings in chronic pancreatitis include dilatation of the pancreatic duct, calcifications, and parenchymal atrophy. Focal enlargement of a portion of the gland secondary to chronic pancreatitis often is indistinguishable from carcinoma. Percutaneous or surgical biopsy may be necessary to establish an accurate diagnosis in this setting.
