Medical News Today -- To date, more than 700 cases of SPTs have been reported in English literature. About 15% are known to present metastasis or recurrence. However, based on the conventional histopathology, it has been difficult to establish the criteria which could be suggestive of the aggressive behavior including recurrence and metastasis. It is well-known that MDCT can provide more accurate delineation of normal and abnormal pancreatic morphology. There is no published literature regarding the imaging features implying the malignant potential of the SPTs of pancreas on MDCT.
