    Transcript
    Pancreatic pseudocyst in greater detail. Let’s take a look. In this cartoon, you notice at the pancreas and why do we call it a pseudocyst? Because the epithelium is not a true epithelium; hence, it’s called a pseudocyst What’s occurring? The fact that there’s autodigestion and there’s accumulation of fluid, I’ll give you that. On CT, if you were take a look at this pancreas with that bulge that you see there, the pseudocyst. On CT, that area of fluid accumulating would then appear as being black or lucent. What you’re seeing here in fact upon your CT is a patient and a huge area of a pancreas that is completely enlarged, represents the pseudocyst. In addition, you also notice other areas. I want you to take a look at - Well, this is CT, so therefore on your right then represents the right side of the patient and then on your left, obviously will be the left side of the patient, okay? Now, based on the CT, I want you to take a look at the left side of side of the patient and, at the very end of that pseudocyst, I want you to locate that little area in which you find increased white opacification. That represents calcification. So you have a pseudocyst, and as the name implies here, properly labelled, we have pancreatic calcification as well. At this point, I would only expect in your education that you’re able to properly interpret a CT scan. ...
