Acute pancreatitis prognostic value of CT.


Epidemiology, aetiology and outcome of acute and chronic pancreatitis: It is proved that we can have patients who are classified with slight disease by means of the Ranson, APACHE-II or hematocrit criteria, however while performing the computed tomography, we found advanced Balthazar degrees, which indicate us that panceatitis scales must not be the only parameter to be taken into account to make the decision of performing or not this radiologic study in patients with slight acute pancreatitis.
