In this study, we intended to image rat pancreas in situ
by using the state-of-the-art clinical MRI and CT
scanners with the assistance of intra-pancreatic
contrast enhancement. Detailed imaging landmarks and
morphology of rat pancreas were measured, described and
presented with 3D rendering. Meanwhile, with the help of
clear recognition of rat pancreas anatomy in situ,
attempts were made for imaging of native pancreatic
landmarks in vivo without any contrast enhancement.
