Research advance in the diagnosis of pancreas divisum

By Zong-fu Zheng and Qi-cai Liu


Pancreas divisum is a kind of congenital anatomic abnormality; its diagnostic basis depends mainly on imaging examination. With the development of medical science, imaging technology has been improved and added, and a complete examination system including ERCP, B-Ultrasound, MRCP, S-MRCP and CT, etc. has been formed. There are even researcher, through further analysis of pancreas divisum on the level of genes, found that CFTR is a risk factor causing such disease. This paper is focused on the value of these examination methods in the diagnosis of pancreas divisum
