Alterations in pancreatic blood have been implicated in pancreatic inflammation and pain.
Several modalities have been used to assess pancreatic blood flow although some of these
methods are invasive, use ionising radiation or intravenous contrast media. This is the first
study to utilise non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging to quantify flow within arteries
supplying the pancreas and pancreatic perfusion is response to secretin stimulation.
