Evaluation of peripancreatic extension or invasion in pancreatic disease is an important role of CT. We analyzed the abdomianl CT findings of 104 normal patients(including the patients with trivial disease processesnot related to pancrease) in regard to whether they actually would visualize the peripancratic fat linesdistinctly or not. In regard to adjacent organs, the duodenal second portion showed the highest rate of obliteration of peripancreatic fat lines(75.0%) In regard to adjacent vessels, the protal confluence showed the highest rate of obliteration (93.75%) and the superior mesenteric vein and the splenic vein also showed high ratesof obliteration of peripancreatic fat lines(89.3% and 78.4%, respectively). And the superior mesenteric artery showed the remarkable preservation rate of 98.1%.
