The aim of the study is to investigate the measurements obtained from the preoperative contrast-enhanced both computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with pathologic specimen in measuring the size of pancreatic cancer. It was found in this study, both contrast-enhanced CT and MRI underestimate mean tumor size by 3.3 mm and 4.7 mm respectively, when compared with the size of pathologic specimen.
