These cases illustrate that at times CT cannot reliably differentiate between collections that consist of fluid only and those that contain fluid and solid necrotic debris with or without infection.

Temporallytwo phases of acute pancreatitis are identified in the Revised Atlanta Classification:. Serum lipase or amylase activity at least three times greater than the upper limit of normal.

ANC 2 Study the images and then continue reading. After drainage the collection barely diminished in size.

These collections are the result of the release of activated pancreatic enzymes which also cause necrosis of the surrounding tissues. Introduction The acute pancreatitis AP ppancreatitis on being one of the gastrointestinal pathologies with more incidence and that can unchain a significative mortality.

Check for errors and try again. The objective of this study was to correlate the severity degree of the acute blthazar according to the Ranson, APACHE-II criteria, and the determination of the serous hematocrit at the moment of admission, with the local pancreatic complications according to the tomographic Balthazar criteria, in order to give a better prognosis value to the tomographic finds in relation with the AP severity.

Most of the pancreas is normal.

Because fat does not ablthazar on CT, the diagnosis of fat necrosis can be difficult. Important remarks concerning Drainage: Preferred locations of fluid collections are: The CTSI sums two scores: Some edema of the uncinate process of the pancreatic head blue arrow.

Necrosis of both pancreatic parenchyma and peripancreatic tissues most common. Med Intensiva ; The early prediction of mortality in acute pancreatitis: It is characterized by a protracted clinical course, a high incidence of local complications, and a high mortality rate.
