2 BackgroundWith the increasing radiological reports of Solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas, its typical imaging features have been well known to radiologists.However, with the improvement in the imaging modalities and widespread use of CT and MRI, those atypical neoplasms have been becoming more and more common.
5 The purpose of this study was to investigate the accuracy of CTand MRI for diagnosis of solidpseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas(SPTP).
6 Material and Methods 39 patients with SPTP proven by histopathology were divided into the correct diagnosis andmisdiagnosis group based on the preoperativeimaging and histopathologic results.All CT and MR imaging signs, including gender,age, tumor size, modalities (CT or MRI), location,shape, capsule, cystic degeneration, hemorrhage,calcification and enhancement type, wereretrospectively evaluated with a correlation to theirpathologic findings and statistically analyzed.
7 Results Among 39 imaging cases, 15 (38.5%) misdiagnosed (mean age years old)24(61.5%) diagnosed. (mean age years old, p=0.000).Tumor size tended to be smaller in the elder group and had a negative linear correlation with the patient age (r=-0.408, p=0.025).cause of higher misdiagnosis: correctly diagnosis :the older patients (p=0.007), gender,small tumors (p=0.037), location,CT (p=0.049) shape,non-hemorrhage (p=0.000) capsule,cystic degeneration,calcificationtype of enhancement .Macroscopically, large SPTPs were more likely to appear the capsule (p=0.002),cystic degeneration (p=0.003)and hemorrhage (p=0.029) than small tumors.

22 ConclusionTo avoid misdiagnosis, it should be very careful to evaluate some characteristic imaging signs in small tumors and those occurred to the aged. Compared to CT, MR was much superior to avoid misdiagnosis of SPTP.
