Assessment of Pancreatic Size in Diabetic Patients Using Ultrasonography
Abstract: Diabetic commonly affects the pancreatic size. Ultrasonography (U/S) of pancreas is a common imaging study performed for diagnosis the pancreatic disease. This Study was preformed to assess the pancreatic size of diabetic patients using ultrasonography and to determine whether there was an association between the size of the pancreas and the duration of diabetes. Ultrasonography of the pancreas was performed on 35 diabetic patients and 35 non-diabetic subjects. The data collected from three hospitals in Khartoum state from January 2016 to July 2016. The patients were examined with the own department protocol using ultrasound machines. The study founded that the pancreatic size in diabetic patients was markedly smaller than the pancreatic size in non-diabetic subjects. Pancreatic size in diabetic patients was related to duration of diabetes mellitus, patients with long duration of diabetes mellitus having small pancreatic size than patients with short duration of diabetes mellitus. Pancreatic size did not correlate with age, body mass index or the types of diabetes. We conclude that the pancreatic size is a smaller in subjects with diabetes mellitus than normal subjects and its decrease with increase duration of the diabetes mellitus.
