Can a CT scan and MRCP test be undetectable for pancreatic cancer?
Sensitivity of detecting pancreatic cancer by CT scan is 89-97 %.
Thanks for writing to HCM ,
I've gone through your query and understand your concern.
Both CT scan and MRCP are very sensitive in detecting pancreatic lesions.However CT scan is widely used and preferred by many doctors.
Sensitivity of detecting pancreatic cancer by CT scan is 89-97 % and few cases may be missed.
MRCP is superior than CT scan in detecting small lesions.
In short, few cases may be missed.
Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your query.
Further queries are most welcome.
