Until the present day there are few studies in literature that try to correlate these differences, this is why we have focused on the performance of a study in our hospital, trying to observe how frequent is the discrepancy between the severity degree and the tomographic finds according to the Balthazar classification. The pancreas is swollen and there is peripancreatic inflammation 2 points.

Until this moment, there are needed higher prospective and multi-centric studies that correlate the tomographic with the clinical and biochemical scales.

The images are of a patient with acute pancreatitis. The patient underwent surgery and the collection was found to consist of necrotic debris, which was not appreciated on CT, hence this was a walled-off-necrosis and not a pseudocyst.

In patients of derange renal function and pregnant patients contrast CT is contraindicated. In relation to the Ranson criteria, Balthazar Bbalthazar or E, without pancreatic necrosis; peripancreatic collections are due to extrapancreatic necrosis severe pancreatitis necrotising: Support Radiopaedia and see fewer ads.


Prognostic value of CT in the early assessment of patients with acute pancreatitis. To assess the prognostic correlation of patient outcome with currently accepted Balthazar and the Modified Mortele Computed Tomography severity indices balthazaf acute pancreatitis.

Pancreatic disease group, Chinese society of gastroenterology and Chinese medical association. Organ system failure, death were clasificafion seen in severe grade in modified CTSI and revised Atlanta classification. Walled-off-necrosis 2 These CT-images are of a patient on day Necrosis of both pancreatic parenchyma and peripancreatic tissues most common.

Frequently they regress spontaneously. In order to make the correlation, the Pearson or the Spearman tests were used according to the distribution of the variables. Revised Atlanta classification is more accurate than modified Mortele index and Balthazar severity index for assessing patient mortality and organ failure.

Pancreas – Acute Pancreatitis 2.0

The Balthazar score was originally used alone, but the addition of a score for pancreatic necrosis improved correlation with clinical severity scores. Although the imaging characteristics in this case are similar to the patient with the pseudocyst, this proved to be infected walled-off-necrosis.

Results Symptoms and signs in patients of acute pancreatitis: Conclusion Contrast enhanced Computed Tomography is excellent diagnostic modality to stage the severity of inflammatory process, detect the pancreatic necrosis and depict local complications and grading of severity of acute pancreatitis.

Contrast enhanced Computed Tomography is excellent diagnostic modality to stage the severity of inflammatory process, detect the pancreatic pajcreatitis and depict local complications and grading of severity of acute pancreatitis.


Abdominal pain consistent with acute pancreatitis: It has been proved that the free intraperitoneal fluid and peripancreatic fat finds are associated with worse results Irshad Ahmad Banday et al. The differential diagnosis includes walled-off necrosis and sometimes a pseudoaneurysm or even a cystic tumor.

Reproducibility in the assessment of acute pancreatitis with computed tomography

Mild pancreatitis These patients have no organ failure. Early – first week Only clinical parameters are important for treatment planning and are determined by the systemic inflammatory response syndrome – SIRS, which can lead to organ failure. Imaging of acute pancreatitis. Balthazar grading in patients with acute pancreatitis: Walled-off Necrosis – WON Based on CT alone it is sometimes impossible to determine whether a collection contains fluid only or a mixture of fluid and necrotic tissue.

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

Check for errors and try again. Aim To assess prognostic correlation and clinical outcome of acute pancreatitis on the basis of CT severity index. They are seen within 4 weeks in necrotizing pancreatitis.

These images are of a patient who presented with acute severe epigastric pain very suggestive of acute pancreatitis. Pseudocysts are uncommon in acute pancreatitis.
