Table 4 Diagnostic indices of triphasic CT sensitivity for detection of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma

From: Detection of small (≤ 2 cm) pancreatic adenocarcinoma and surrounding parenchyma: correlations between enhancement patterns at triphasic MDCT and histologic features

  PPP PVP DP
Tumor vs upstream (n = 38)* 31/38 (81.6) 29/38 (76.3) 17/38 (44.7)
Tumor vs downstream (n = 25)** 25/25 (100) 22/25 ( 88) 20/25 (80)
  1. PPP: pancreatic parenchymal phase; PVP = portal venous phase; DP = delayed phase. *CT/histologic assessment in 38/38 patients; **CT/histologic assessment in 25/38 patients. Number in the brackets indicates the percentage.
