Perineural Invasion

Perineural invasion is common in pancreatic ductal ad-enocarcinoma. However, the diagnosis is made on his-tologic examination and rarely by imaging studies because of the inability to define nerves around the pancreas. There are no objective criteria to define peri-neural invasion by imaging studies. It is also possible that perivascular invasion along the arteries around the pancreas is, in fact, perineural invasion because most of the peripancreatic nerves accompany the peripancreatic vessels (Figs. 12-5 and 12-7).
