Pancreas

 

Overview

 

Clinical anatomy

Development of the pancreas

Clinical case

Clinical case 1
 

Instructions

 

Macroscopy

  1. The macroscopic build of the pancreas.
  2. Vertebral heights of the different parts of the pancreas.
  3. Arterial supply and venous drainage of the pancreas.
  4. Anatomical basis of the pancreas as endocrine and exocrine organ.
  5. Name the posterior relationships of the head of the pancreas which comes into play with tumors in the head of the pancreas. What symptoms and signs does obstruction of these structures cause?
  6. Pancreas on RT and MRI scans.

Microscopy

  • Name the cells that are present in the islet of Langerhans as well as the hormones they produce.
