|Postoperative monitoring after cryoablation of pancreatic tumors|
Ultrasound at 3 months and 6 months showed a significant decrease of blood flow in pancreatic tumors after CA.
MRI showed apparent diffusion coefficient values increase in pancreatic tumors after CA.
Contrast enhanced computed tomography showed marked increase of contrast agent accumulation by pancreatic tumor in delayed phase at 3 months and 6 months after CA, which probably indicates the formation of fibrous tissue. The size of the cryoablation zone did not change. The degree of pancreatic hypertension slightly increased.
These criteria can be used to assess the completeness of pancreatic tumor cryoablation.
