Table 1 Overview of the most important studied parameters

From: Quantitative low mechanical index contrast-enhanced endoscopic ultrasound for the differential diagnosis of chronic pseudotumoral pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer

  Women (%) Age (interval) Signal intensity compared to parenchyma on entire TICs (interval) Correct TIC-based diagnosis (%)
Pseudotumoral pancreatitis 12 (63) 45 (32 –73) 2.7 (0.8 – 6.9) 17 (89.5)
Pancreatic adenocarcinoma 14 (44) 53 (41 – 82) −18.4 (−30.1 – 0.17) 30 (93.75)
  1. Mean age and gender repartition in each studied pathology. Median signal intensities for pseudotumoral pancreatitis and pancreatic adenocarcinoma resulting TICs. Number of correct classifications based on TIC analysis only.
