The purpose of this study was to estimate the volume of normal pancreas in adults using the CT volumetry (summation of the areas technique), analyze the correlation between the volume and the diameters of pancreas, which are measurable by the cross-sectional imaging, and assess the relationship with the gender, age, and body constitution. 220 CT examinations were analyzed retrospectively (102 females, 118 males; age 16-82, average 56).

or symptoms of acute or chronic pancreatitis. Glasbrenner B, Büchler M, Uhl W, Malfertheiner P. Exocrine pancreatic function in the early recovery phase of acute oedematous pancreatitis. Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol 1992; 4: 563–567. It is concluded that (1) recovery to normal does not necessarily occur after acute pancreatitis, (2) progression to chronic pancreatitis is possible at a considerable percentage, and (3) duct changes demonstrated by ERCP may persist without any later signs and symptoms of acute or chronic pancreatitis.

Figure 2. Cells of the pancreas. Another way of to help make the diagnosis of the chronic pancreatitis is to check the pancreatic function. The pancreas has two types exocrine cells which include acinar and ductal cells; and endocrine cells present in the islets of Langerhans. The exocrine portion of the pancreas makes up 85% of the pancreas. Obstruction of the duodenum or common bile duct may worsen acute episodes. Inflammation of the nerves also causes pain. Various treatment modalities are targeted to these different factors. As indicated early, disease progression is accompanied by loss of function of the pancreas.

The pancreas is located deep in the retroperitoneal space of the upper part of the abdomen (Figure 1). It is almost . It is almost completely covered by the stomach and duodenum. This elongated gland (12–20 cm in the adult) has a lobe-like structure. Variation in shape and exact body location is common. Symptoms The clinical presentation of chronic pancreatitis is usually abdominal pain, ranging from a sudden acute abdominal catastrophe to mild episodes of deep epigastric pain and possible vomiting. Chronic pancreatitis may produce constant, dull, unremitting abdominal pain, epigastric tenderness, weight loss, steatorrhea and glucose intolerance.

With repeated bouts of acute pancreatitis, damage to the pancreas can occur and lead to chronic pancreatitis. Scar tissue may form in the pancreas, causing loss of function. A poorly functioning pancreas can cause digestion problems and diabetes

With repeated bouts of acute pancreatitis, damage to the pancreas can occur and lead to chronic pancreatitis. A poorly functioning pancreas can cause digestion problems and diabetes. Conditions that can lead to pancreatitis include: Abdominal surgery.

Clearly structured text, presented with the corresponding illustrations on a two-page spread Compiled by a team of authors with many years’ experience in the field of diseases of the pancreas, this book is an ideal combination of evidence-based literature and the authors’ expertise. An interdisciplinary approach to the basis, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the pancreas has been chosen, and the succinct and clearly structured text is consistently linked with the corresponding illustrations on a two-page spread. The division into three major parts (acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic tumors) further enhances the clarity of the text. In the chapter ‘Acute pancreatitis’, along with the new markers of necrosis, several major topics of imaging via nuclear magnetic resonance and the different randomized controlled studies addressing treatment are covered. In the section on chronic pancreatitis, clinical aspects, pancreatic function and imaging, and recent clinical studies receive special attention. Finally, in the section on tumors of the pancreas, particular emphasis has been placed on imaging with the newer techniques of spiral computed tomography and ultra-rapid magnetic resonance imaging in the ‘all-in-one’ technique. Furthermore, molecular biology, which in the future will become increasingly important, and the concept of gene polymorphisms underlying many diseases have received special attention. This clearly laid out and easily readable encyclopedia is aimed particularly at general practitioners and students in their clinical years, as well as at specialists who desire a more in-depth knowledge of the pancreas, such as internists, gastroenterologists, surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, pathologists and pediatricians. But others will also find this to be a comprehensive reference book on the subject.
