Infection is rare during the first week. This patient had an acute necrotizing pancreatitis with onset 2 months earlier. USG and abdominal CT are the most commonly used diagnostic imaging modalities for the evaluation of pancreas. In table IIwe can observe the characteristics of the patients according to the severity markers.

Preferred locations of fluid collections are:. Normal enhancement of the entire pancreas. You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. These collections develop early in the course of acute pancreatitis. There exist few studies that correlate these parameters. Claaificacion collection underwent successful percutaneous drainage, which showed clear fluid with high amylase and subsequently resolved along with the patient’s symptoms.

CT Evaluation of Acute Pancreatitis and its Prognostic Correlation with CT Severity Index

Usually the necrosis involves both the pancreas and the peripancreatic tissues. This fluid collection is encapsulated.

Modified CT severity index makes the score easier to calculate and reduces the inter-observer variation. 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. Remarkably, a CT performed 6 months after surgery showed a normal pancreas. Many of baltnazar patients however will have necrotizing pancreatitis and the mortality increases when the necrosis becomes infected.


Interstitial pancreatitis Morphologically there are 2 types of acute pancreatitis – interstitial or oedematous pancreatitis and necrotizing pancreatitis.

The s everity is classified into three categories based on clinical and morphologic findings according to revised Atlanta classification [ 8 ]. The clasificafion everity is classified into three categories based on clinical and morphologic findings: The scores obtained with the modified Mortele index, showed a stronger correlation for all outcome parameters in all the patients better than the Balthazar index.

Concerning the hematocrit value, 57 and Acute peripancreatic collection Acute necrotic collection Pseudocyst Walled off necrosis 36 24 0 0.

Transverse mesocolon Small bowel mesentery. In order to see the staging of pancreatic damage, these patients had performed an abdominal tomography 72 hours clasificaxion the beginning of the symptoms. For a better determination of the disease’s severity, it must be performed 2 to 3 days after the beginning of the symptoms.

Introduction The acute claaificacion AP keeps on being one of the gastrointestinal pathologies with more incidence and that can unchain a significative mortality. The radiologic image is used to confirm or exclude the clinical diagnosis, establish the cause, evaluate the severity, detect complications and provide a guide for therapy 9. After drainage the collection barely diminished in size. Imaging of acute pancreatitis.


They are not or only partially encapsulated. Length of hospital stay, Need for surgery or percutaneous intervention, Evidence of infection in any organ system, Occurrence of organ failure- respiratory, clasificaciin, renal, hepatic and haematological system, death. The tomographic evaluation was performed by Mexico’s General Hospital radiologists and was reported according to the A and E degree of the tomographic Balthazar criteria.

The optimal interventional strategy for patients with suspected or confirmed infected necrotizing pancreatitis is initial image-guided percutaneous retroperitoneal catheter drainage or endoscopic transluminal drainage, followed, if necessary, by endoscopic or surgical necrosectomy.

Fifty per cent of the patients had acute severe pancreatitis according to the Atlanta criteria.

CT Evaluation of Acute Pancreatitis and its Prognostic Correlation with CT Severity Index

The change in severity scoring was seen mainly due to the balfhazar of extrapancreatic complication. As the patient’s condition worsened, a second CT was performed on day 3. Ninety-two point nine per cent of the patients had less than 3 Ranson criteria of which True pseudocysts are uncommon, since most acute peripancreatic fluid collections resolve within 4 weeks.

It is characterized by a protracted clinical clsaificacion, a high incidence of local complications, and a high mortality rate.
