THE CAPABILITIES OF COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY AND ULTRASONOGRAPHY IN DIAGNOSIS OF PANCREATIC INVASION IN GASTRIC CANCER
Kharkiv Region Clinical Oncology Center, Ukraine
Capabilities of ultrasonography and computed tomography in evaluation of tumor pancrease invasion by gastric cancer were investigated. The main x−ray tomography and ultrasound signs of pancreas invasion were distinguished and systematized. Main CT symptoms of gastric cancer invasion to the pancreas are: absence of parapancreatic fiber between the posterior wall of the stomach and the pancreas, irregular boundary between the tumor tissue of the stomach and pancreas. The main ultrasonic symptoms of stomach cancer with invasion of the pancreas are concave contour of the gland in the area of stomach tumor ingrowth, rough boundary between the gland and the affected wall of the stomach, absence of stomach displacement relatively the pancreas. The analysis showed the feasibility of transabdominal ultrasound examination of the stomach and spiral computed tomography in the diagnosis of pancreatic invasion by gastric cancer.
Key words: cancer of the stomach, computed tomography, ultrasonography, prevalence, pancreas.
