Diagnosis and Management of Pancreatic Cysts

Diagnosis and Management of Pancreatic Cysts
With increasing use of cross-sectional imaging, the diagnosis of pancreatic cysts is climbing. The goal of this program is to review and discuss the different types of pancreatic cystic lesions that are most often encountered in practice and to distinguish worrisome (mucinous) from benign (nonmucinous) cysts. Additionally, the program will help healthcare providers negotiate the different guidelines in order to facilitate appropriate plan and follow up on these patients. In addition to an in depth presentation, attendees will be able to participate in a Q&A session. The recorded session is included in your registration fee.
