Role of Ultrasonography and Computed Tomography in Diagnosis of Pancreatitis

Dr. Jainex Patel, Dr. Purvi Desai

Acute pancreatitis or acute pancreatic necrosis is a sudden inflammation of the pancreas. It can have severe complications and high mortality despite treatment. Chronic pancreatitis represents the end result of a continuous, prolonged, inflammatory and fibrosing process that affects the pancreas. This results in irreversible morphologic changes and permanent endocrine and exocrine pancreatic dysfunction. USG and CT scan plays crucial role in diagnosing and assessing the severity of pancreatitis.
