ACR Appropriateness Criteria Staging of Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma

This is a clinical practice guideline for adults and children with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. Different variations of imaging modalities such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound (US) are discussed. The guideline examines the appropriateness of these techniques for two clinical situations: during initial staging before treatment, and following neoadjuvant therapy to evaluate tumour resectability for borderline resectable tumours.
