Determination of Value of Contrast Enhanced Computed Tomography (CECT) in Early Diagnosis of Acute Pancreatitis: An Observational, Hospital - Based, Single - Center Study

Dr. Vijay D. Wakode | Dr. Anjali P. Wasadikar


Abstract: Background: Management of patients with acute pancreatitis is based on the early assessment of severity of disease. This current prospective, observational, hospital - based, single - center study was aimed to determine the value of contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) in early diagnosis of acute pancreatitis. Methods: This study comprised of 60 cases on clinical suspicion of acute pancreatitis. A detailed clinical history of the patient was taken and relevant examination findings and investigations were recorded. All images were stored in memory and were reviewed on the console and on hard Copy. Multi planar reconstructions were performed wherever applicable. The data was entered; tabulated and statistical analysis was performed by using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS 22.0). Result: In our study, 73 patients had positive ultrasound finding, while CT was positive in all cases. According to, MCTSI 63 patients had moderate, 26 patients had mild and 11 patients had severe pancreatitis. Conclusion: Most patients are of mild score that possibly explains early use of CECT in diagnosis of AP and increased rate of detection of early pancreatitis.
