The Importance of Diagnosis

Importance of a Good Diagnosis

  • Medical History. Previous experience of abdominal injury or pancreatitis may indicate a pseudocyst (benign cyst).The characteristics and location of the pancreatic cyst, along with age and sex, can help doctors identify the type of cyst.
  • CT Scan. Used to provide detailed information regarding the structure of a pancreatic cyst.
  • MRI Scan. Used to highlight subtle details of a pancreatic cyst, including whether or not it has solid components.
  • Endoscopic Ultrasound. Can provide a detailed image of the cyst and collect fluid for analysis in a laboratory, through a fine needle aspiration (FNA) procedure.
