At the level of the pancreatic tail, a space-occupying formation is identified, measuring approximately 4.7 x 3.9 cm, with a multilobulated and mixed microcystic and macrocystic appearance, hyperintense on T2-weighted and on T2 SPIR. DWI sequence shows no significant restriction.
Pancreatic serous cystadenomas can have different appearances: microcystic, macrocystic/"oligocystic", mixed microcystic and macrocystic and solid.
