Erman Akkus on a paper by Amer Alaref et al.

Erman Akkus, Medical Oncology Fellow at Ankara University, shared a post on X:

“Resected pancreatic cancer and abdominal MRI on The Lancet Reg Health-Americas.

Pre-operative abdominal MRI was associated with improved OS

  • 4579 patients
  • 51.4% had a preop abdominal MRI
  • OS in MRI vs no-MRI
  • 33.1 months vs 22.1 months
  • aHR: 0.828 (0.769-0.890)

The ones who have less tumor burden and who are more likely to be resected may have had more MRI?

Despite the limitations, this study suggests that MRI should be utilized.”
