It is difficult to differentiate the solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas (SPTP) from pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET), due to their similar imaging characteristics. Enhanced T2 * weighted angiography (ESWAN) technique can simultaneously obtain amplitude, phase, R2 * and T2 * values, which can quantitatively assess the magnetic sensitivity characteristics of tissues. There was significant difference in R2 * (AUC: 0.707; sensitivity: 91.3%; specificity: 46.7%)and T2*(AUC: 0.829; sensitivity: 73.9%; specificity: 86.7%)between SPTP and PNET. Therefore, ESWAN may be an effective method to identify SPTP and PNET.
