PANCREATIC CALCULI – THE COMET TAIL DOPPLER APPEARANCE


This was a 34 year old man with recurrent upper abdominal pain.

The following was seen

pancreatic calculi are seen

with power doppler and mild angulation the comet tail sign is seen well .

the next is the same image without the power doppler

When we have a doubt about the presence of calculi anywhere , colour and power doppler can clarify with the comet tail appearance appearing posterior to the calculi.
