Indication/purpose: To review contrast-enhanced ultrasound features of the most common pancreatic tumours. Methods: Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) can provide distinctive features of pancreatic tumours that are reported in the present paper, providing radiologic-pathological correlations and clarifying the main differential diagnosis. Conclusion: Contrast-enhanced ultrasound plays a well-established role in the evaluation of pancreatic tumours. When possible, CEUS should be always performed after the initial US diagnosis, in order to improve the accuracy of the first line examination.

Abstract

Indication/purpose: To review contrast-enhanced ultrasound features of the most common pancreatic tumours. Methods: Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) can provide distinctive features of pancreatic tumours that are reported in the present paper, providing radiologic-pathological correlations and clarifying the main differential diagnosis. Conclusion: Contrast-enhanced ultrasound plays a well-established role in the evaluation of pancreatic tumours. When possible, CEUS should be always performed after the initial US diagnosis, in order to improve the accuracy of the first line examination.
