dc.description.abstract Pancreas divisum (PD), is the most common congenital variant of pancreatic anatomy, and is found in ∼10% of the population. It may account for up to 25% of cases of unexplained acute and chronic pancreatitis. ERCP, the gold standard for diagnosis, is invasive and associated with a 4-7% risk of pancreatitis. The accuracy and comparisons of less invasive testing such as endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) and multi-detector CT (MDCT) in diagnosing PD is not well defined. en_US
