    00:00 Pancreatic pseudocyst in greater detail. Let?s take a look.

    00:05 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.

    00:15 What?s occurring? The fact that there?s autodigestion and there?s accumulation of fluid, I?ll give you that.

    00:21 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.

    00:36 What you?re seeing here in fact upon your CT is a patient and that huge area of a pancreas that is completely enlarged, represents the pseudocyst. In addition, you also notice that the areas.

    00:51 I want you to take a look at - Well, this is CT, so therefore on your left then represents the right side of the patient and then on your right, obviously will be the left side of the patient, okay?
