OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to assess value of contrast-enhanced MRI, MRCP, and DWI for differentiating mass-forming autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) from pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). MATERIALS AND METHODS. This study included 15 patients with mass-forming AIP and 79 with PDAC who underwent gadoxetic acid–enhanced MRI with DWI and MRCP. Two radiologists evaluated the MRI findings in consensus. Statistically significant imaging findings were identified through univariate and...

Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related kidney disease (IgG4-KD) has recently been demonstrated to be an important part of IgG4-related sclerosing disease (IgG4-SD). However, since IgG4-KD is still relatively unfamiliar to radiologists and physicians as compared to IgG4-SD involving other organs, it could, therefore, be easily missed. In this article, we present a comprehensive pictorial review of IgG4-KD with regards to the imaging spectrum, mimickers, and clinicopathologic characteristics, based on o...

This article aimed to study features on dual-phase computed tomography (CT) that help differentiate autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) from pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PA). The CTs of 32 patients with AIP were matched with equal number of PA and were independently evaluated by 3 radiologists who assigned a diagnosis of AIP, PA, or unsure. Interobserver agreement between radiologists was evaluated using κ statistics. The mean accuracies for diagnosing AIP and PA were 68% and 83%, respectively. There wa...

Purpose: To determine the characteristic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of mass-forming autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), which allow its differentiation from pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PAC). Materials and Methods: MR images of 37 patients with either pathologically proven, mass-forming AIPs (n = 9) or PACs (n = 28) were retrospectively reviewed. The pancreatic MR protocol included unenhanced images, contrast-enhanced dynamic images, diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), and MR-cholangiopanc...

Background null Multifocal-type autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP), sometimes forming multiple pancreatic masses, is frequently misdiagnosed as pancreatic malignancy in routine clinical practice. It is critical to know the imaging features of multifocal-type AIP to prevent misdiagnosis and unnecessary surgery. To the best of our knowledge, there have been no studies evaluating the value of diffusionweighted imaging (DWI), axial fat-suppressed T1 weighted image (T1WI), and dynamic contrast enhanced-co...

PURPOSE To evaluate the diagnostic performance of the radiomics score (rad-score) for differentiating focal-type autoimmune pancreatitis (fAIP) from pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). METHODS This retrospective review included 42 consecutive patients with fAIP diagnosed according to the International Consensus Diagnostic Criteria between January 2011 and December 2018. Furthermore, 334 consecutive patients with PDAC confirmed by pathology were also reviewed during the same period. Patients...

Abstract Background/objectives International consensus diagnostic criteria (ICDC) include characteristic images of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP); however, reports on atypical cases are increasing. The aims of this study were to compare CT findings between AIP and pancreatic cancer (PC), and to analyze type 1 AIPs showing atypical images. Methods Five-phase CT images were compared between 80 type 1-AIP lesions and 80 size- and location-matched PCs in the case-control study. Atypical AIPs were dia...

To compare computed diffusion-weighted imaging (cDWI) feasibility with that of directly acquired DWI for visualizing pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and focal autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). From April 2012 to January 2017, 135 patients with PDAC (n = 111) or focal AIP (n = 24) were retrospectively enrolled. They underwent DWI with b-values of 0, 500, and 1000 s/mm2. From DWI0 and DWI1000, we generated cDWIs with targeted b-values of 1500, 2000, and 3000 s/mm2. The lesions’ signal intensi...

Background To analyze the atypical enhanced computed tomography (CT) signs of pancreatic cancer (PC) and compare them with those of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) to explore the differential diagnosis value of CT. Methods The clinical data of 36 AIP (AIP group) and 38 PC patients (PC group), who were admitted to our hospital from January 2013 to June 2020 and confirmed by surgical biopsy or hormone therapy, were retrospectively analyzed. Participants in both groups were examined by CT, the imagin...
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Type 2 autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a rare inflammatory disease of the pancreas. Very few data have been published on this particular subtype, which differs from the 'classical' IgG4-related type 1 AIP in terms of pathological features, epidemiology and risk of relapse. The aim of the current review is to summarize the available literature, suggesting a diagnostic and therapeutic approach to this disease. RECENT FINDINGS Based on the International Consensus Diagnostic Crite...

Autoimmune pancreatitis is a rare form of chronic pancreatitis. The first descriptions of the disease date back to the 1990s. Etiology is multifactorial, with the use of genetic, environmental and complex immunological mechanisms. It is classified into two subtypes. Type 1 is part of a group of diseases called IgG4-related disease. Clinically is autoimmune pancreatitis manifested by icterus and abdominal discomfort. It can rarely present as acute pancreatitis. There is also a completely asymptom...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has continued to have a poor prognosis for the last few decades in spite of recent advances in different imaging modalities mainly due to difficulty in early diagnosis and aggressive biological behavior. Early PDAC can be missed on CT due to similar attenuation relative to the normal pancreas, small size, or hidden location in the uncinate process. Tumor resectability and its contingency on the vascular invasion most commonly assessed with multi-phasic thi...
