Multidetector CT (MDCT) provides unparalleled capabilities for combining narrow scan collimation with rapid data acquisition protocols. When combined with CT angiographic techniques and 3D-volume rendering we are able to create unique displays for evaluating a range of clinical pathologies. In this pictorial review we present the potential advantages of using MDCT angiography for the evaluation of pancreatic cancer and its role in the accurate staging of these patients. The use of dual-phase CT scanning in both the arterial phase and portal phase is addressed with the role of 3D CT angiography clearly defined. Numerous case studies are presented to show the advantages of these techniques over simple axial CT imaging.
