The diagnosis is usually established when there is a combination of abdominal pain and elevated pancreatic enzymes and CECT is not required, unless there is uncertainty about the diagnosis.

Imaging and intervention in acute pancreatitis. Communication with the pancreatic duct may be present. This maybe explained because it is a third level concentration center in which most of the Bwlthazar patients are looked after dde second level centers, therefore our pancreatltis cannot be extrapolated to the population in general; it would be important to perform this analysis on these kind of attention centers.

Early – first week Only clinical parameters are important for treatment planning and are determined by the systemic inflammatory response syndrome – SIRS, which can lead to organ failure.
