The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of a novel radiologic-histologic correlation device RHCD and ex vivo MRI to facilitate direct correlation of radiologic and histologic features of pancreas cancer. Our approach is based on previous radiologic-histologic correlation of pancreatic anatomy using cadaveric pancreas specimens. The final protocol was applied to co-localize pancreas cancer margins radiologically and histologically, as well as nodal burden in pancreaticoduodenectomy specimens.
