Radiological intervention in pancreatic cancer.
Eur Radiol. 1998; 8(1):9-15.ER

Abstract

Pancreatic carcinoma is increasing in its incidence, and despite advances in surgical treatment and chemotherapy, its prognosis remains extremely poor. Realistic therapy is targeted primarily at the relief of obstruction of the biliary tract and the duodenum, as well as the relief of pain. This paper discusses the indications and techniques for palliation and illustrates the critical team approach between radiologist, endoscopist and surgeon.
