Pancreatic cancer tests and diagnosis

If pancreatic cancer is suspected, your doctor will take a thorough medical history and perform a physical exam to look for any suspicious masses or swelling. If needed, your doctor may recommend several tests to diagnose or rule out the disease.

Pancreatic cancer diagnostic options include:
  • CT scan
  • MRI
  • Ultrasound
  • Cholangiopancreatography
  • PET scan
  • Angiography
  • Biopsy

Part of our nationally recognized hepatopancreaticobiliary (HPB) program, this team is composed of renowned experts in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, oncology, radiation oncology, interventional radiology, pathology and pancreas surgery.
