Arteriography with visualization of small intrapancreatic arteries is a sensitive method in the diagnosis of pancreatic carcinoma. It can detect small intrapancreatic tumors and differentiate neoplasms from other pancreatic lesions. It also aids in staging pancreatic cancer and determining resectability. Transhepatic pancreatic venography is less sensitive than arteriography but it also can be useful in evaluating tumor operability. Pancreatic venous sampling is an important method for localizing hormone‐secreting islet cell tumors.
