Evidence of full-thickness tear of the pancreas at the junction between pancreatic head and pancreatic body with surrounding heterogeneous enhancement of the pancreatic head. The uncinate process appears normal.
Mild ascites noted.
No pneumoperitoneum. No contrast extravasation.

Features are of pancreatic transection (at the junction of pancreatic head and body) with pancreatic head injury associated with mild hemoperitoneum.
