      VASCULAR RELATIONS OF THE PANCREAS: ANATOMICAL-IMAGISTIC CORRELATIONS (Abstract): Introduction: the pancreas is a retroperitoneal parenchymatous organ located at the intersection of the main abdominal vascular routes. The disposition of peripancreatic vessels is naturally achieved in consecutive plans. This feature increases the difficulty of identifying vascular structures by imaging means. Materials and methods: We carried out the dissection of peripancreatic vessels in a number of 5 formalized corpses in the laboratory of the anatomy discipline of the University of Medicine “Carol Davila”. The dissection pieces were photographed regarding the vascular routes. We evaluated the examinations of 20 patients at the “REMENIX” imagistic clinic in Galati using CT Philips MX 16 slices. All patients had CT examination with native acquisition followed by arterial, portal and late venous phase. Results: Each vascular plan has been characterized anatomically and imagistic, highlighting the anatomical landmarks that ease the imagistic diagnostic. We have underlined the anatomical variability and identification criteria for peripancreatic vessels. At the level of the pancreatic isthmus, from superficial to profound, the origins of the portal vein, superior mesenteric artery, inferior vena cava and abdominal aorta overlap. Conclusions: The imagistic diagnostic is favored by the tracking the vascular pathways in successive sectional plans.
