Pancreas – CT

This series of abdominal images is meant to depict the location and appearance of the pancreas by CT. The pancreas is seen just anterior to the aorta, and is fairly centrally placed. The tail is to the left, while the head is to the right. Note the easily visible pancreatic duct seen in the first image of the series. [Courtesy of Dr. N. Jaffer]
