90% of tumours of pancreas consists of adenocarcinomas, most localises at the head of the pancreas with early symptom for the compression of the common bile duct (jaundice). tumors localized in the body (15%) or in the queue (5%) damage and delayed sympotoms devious therefore are diagnosed too late until they reach a stage inoperable.
CT multiphase protocol has a high sensitivity to detect the tumor and allows a accurate staging.
Adenocarcinoma of pancreas has a marked tendency to hematogenous and lymphatic spread and locoregional invasiveness.
