At the MGH CIST Center, patients with pancreatic cystic lesions are monitored with advanced pancreas imaging at regular intervals. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) imaging provides detailed images of the cystic lesions and associated findings of nodules, masses, dilated ducts and thickened septations.
