Figure 8 Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN). A: An endoscopic diagnosis of an IPMN can be established if the “fish-eye” ampulla is visualized in minority cases; B: IPMN of main duct type. EUS shows a mural nodule within by the mucinous dilatation of the pancreatic ducts, with involvement of the main duct at the tail of the pancreas; C: IPMN of side branch type. EUS shows a multiple dilatation of the side branch at the neck of the pancreas; D: IPMN of the combined type. EUS show a mural nodule stretching (circle) over the main pancreatic duct and side branches (arrows) at the body of the pancreas. E: IPMN of main duct type. Intraductal ultrasonography (IDUS) can identify tumor nodule development into the main pancreatic duct (arrows). MPD: Main pancreatic duct.
