Functions of pancreas are associated with its volume and fat fraction. 3D mDixon Quant has been proved to be valuable in measuring fat fraction, which was employed in this study for determination of volume and fat content of pancreas. Then the correlations of pancreas volume and fat content to age, gender and BMI were examined. Results showed a significant negative correlation of age to the pancreas volume, while positive to the fat fraction. Therefore, 3D mDixon Quant is helpful in assessing pancreas volume and fat fraction. As age increases, the pancreas tends to shrink and its fat fraction to increase.
