The purpose of this study was to develop a protocol for use of a previously validated radiologic-histologic correlation device to evaluate the pancreas with ex vivo MRI. Precise radiologic-histologic correlation of pancreatic anatomy was achieved in cadaveric pancreas specimens. The final protocol will be applied to co-localize pancreas cancer margins radiologically and histologically, as well as nodal burden in pancreaticoduodenectomy specimens.
