CT body perfusion: Pancreatic tumor

Application Tip
Mr. Fusi, Cristiano Philips Healthcare • Italy

Patient history

This 67 year-old male underwent an abdominal US for vague abdominal pain. The US showed a large hypoechoic mass in the body-tail of the pancreas as well as two liver lesions compatible with metastases.


The patient then underwent MDCT of the abdomen. The Brilliance 64-channel scanner was used to perform a perfusion scan of the pancreatic tumor.

Imaging parameters

  • Standard resolution

  • 64 x 0.625 mm collimation

  • 5 mm/5 mm thickness/increments

  • 120 kV

  • 80 mAs

  • 0.4 second rotation speed

  • 1.08 pitch

  • Option: Jog mode (Helical)

  • 50 ml@4ml/sec iodine contrast

 

Clinical significance

The jog mode allowed us to perform a perfusion CT scan with larger Z-axis coverage,

including the entire pancreatic tumor.



Results from case studies are not predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary.
