Featured Article: CT during celiac artery angiography for localization of clinically suspected small insulinomas
Using non-invasive imaging modalities, small insulinomas can prove quite difficult to localize in the pancreas. This can impede on deciding the type and extent of resection that is required to treat the tumor and therefore preoperative localization of the tumor is imperative to enable optimal treatment.
In this study, F. Duan et al. assessed the performance of using CT during celiac artery angiography in helping to diagnose and localize small insulinomas. This process can then help to guide pancreatic resection.

Featured: How I read Cancer Imaging Studies: The Master Class Series
Surprisingly, in contrast to the literature regarding the outcomes of imaging, the methods that underpin the generation of an imaging report and how to communicate the findings cogently to referring clinicians remain something of a ‘black box'. In this thematic series, experts across various modalities detail their approach to reporting scans in particular disease settings.
