Quality Control Study of MR Based Screening of Individual With Increased Risk for Pancreas Cancer.
Early detection of pre-cancerous lesions or early stage pancreatic cancer seems to have a positive impact in survival for patients with an increased genetic risk to develop pancreas cancer.
In this study, following the indication of the swedish guidelines, consecutive patients with a family history for pancreas cancer underwent a clinical surveillance Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) based. The results of this study were analyzed looking in the patients files collected during the screening period.
