We describe radiological characteristics of intraductal papillary mucinous tumor (IPMT) of the pancreas, giving a classification of IPMT based on imaging findings at Ultrasound, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance and Cholangiopancreatography with Magnetic Resonance. Different from the first IPMT classification, based on anatomical correlation, we propose a classification based on anatomical, clinical and radiological findings, that describes focal or diffuse main duct IPMT, combined IPMT and unifocal or multifocal side branch IPMT.

Abstract

We describe radiological characteristics of intraductal papillary mucinous tumor (IPMT) of the pancreas, giving a classification of IPMT based on imaging findings at Ultrasound, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance and Cholangiopancreatography with Magnetic Resonance. Different from the first IPMT classification, based on anatomical correlation, we propose a classification based on anatomical, clinical and radiological findings, that describes focal or diffuse main duct IPMT, combined IPMT and unifocal or multifocal side branch IPMT.
