High Resolution Ultrasound in Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma

Official Title

Advancing The Local Staging Of Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma Through High-Resolution Ultrasound: A Pilot Study


Pancreatic cancer patients at UHN who have had a CT at UHN and have surgery planned will undergo a high resolution ultrasound pre-operatively and intra-operatively. This study is being done to see if using high resolution ultrasound before and during surgery will help the doctors accurately diagnose pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma and identify if the disease has spread to other areas of the body.
