The differential diagnosis of mass-forming focal pancreatitis (MFFP) and pancreatic cancer (PC) is clinically important. Our study shows that combined assessment of magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) with dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) is a promising technique with improved specificity of diagnosing PC from MFFP cases, when comparing with DCE-MRI.
