Eligibility Criteria

Age 18 - 100 · All Participants · 1 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
Tumors between 5mm to 4cm can be included in the study. Small tumors are sometimes difficult to detect, and larger pancreas tumors can cause fibrosis, making surgery harder. If your imaging test shows that your tumor can be surgically removed, small metal markers may be placed to help guide the surgeon. However, if imaging tests show that surgery is not possible, metal markers will not be placed.
