Abstract

The current study was based on Computed Tomography (CT) findings and results. We found 63% of patients with acute interstitial edematous pancreatitis, and we found 37% of patients with acute necrotic pancreatitis in 46 cases. Based on our findings, we observed bulky pancreas among 26 cases (56.52%), 17 cases (36.95%) of pancreatic necrosis, 9 cases of pancreatic atrophy, 11 cases of pseudocyst, and 9 cases of peri-pancreatic fluid. When we evaluated the Modified CT Severity index among the study cases, we observed that 19.56% cases have mild index, the majority (56.52% cases) have moderate index while 23.91% have severe index. We also found that majority of the cases were clinically cured and discharged, i.e., 47.82%. 19.56% of the total study subjects reported recurrence of episodes of pancreatitis, while 30.43% of the total patients turned into chronic pancreatitis. This study presents a cross-sectional hospital-based analytical study carried out among 46 cases of AP referred to under the radiology department for further diagnostic evaluation, in a tertiary healthcare facility in Maharashtra. The present study Data Source included all the AP patients referred to the radiological department in a tertiary health research center. They met the standards for inclusiveness, which assented to the analysis. Type of study is Hospital analytical based study. The study duration is 18 months. Data collection was done through semi-structured, pre-designed, and pre-validated proformas in patients meeting inclusion requirements that included disease history, clinical outcomes, investigative records, and descriptions of surgical interventions.
