Abstract

Modern radiology makes possible an accurate diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in about 95% of cases. Conventional upper gastrointestinal study, isotopic scanning, hypotonic duodenography, and ultrasonography are suitable as screening procedures. Special methods of high accuracy — pancreatic arteriography, endoscopic pancreatography, and transhepatic cholangiography are used as needed for definitive diagnosis.
