Carcinoma of the head of the pancreas.
A 76-year old man with a one-week history of painless jaundice. The CT
scan shows a dilated pancreatic duct, dilated intrahepatic ducts and and a 2cm mass in the head of the pancreas. The tumor appears to be
separate from the portal vein and there is no evidence of local or
distant spread. The arrow points to the tumor. Whilst this lesion is
potentially resectable, the man's age and his emphysema would argue in
favour of a stent.
