The pancreas has complex arterial supplies. Therefore, special attention should be paid in pancreatic arterial intervention for patients with acute pancreatitis and pancreatic carcinomas. Knowledge of pancreatic arterial anatomy and arterial territory is important not only to perform pancreatic arterial intervention, but to read the pancreatic angiography and cross-sectional image. We reviewed 226 selective abdominal angiography and CT scans during selective arteriography (CTA) of common hepatic artery, superior mesenteric artery, splenic artery, or peripancreatic arteries including posterior superior pancreaticoduodenal artery, anterior superior pancreaticoduodenal artery, inferior pancreaticoduodenal artery, and dorsal pancreatic artery. CTA images were evaluated to clarify the cross-sectional anatomy of the pancreatic arterial territory. Variations of the peripancreatic arteries were also investigated. In this exhibit, schemes and illustrative cases demonstrate pancreatic arterial territory and variations.
