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.
