Results: The CT appearances of acute pancreatitis included:swelling of pancreas in various degree (83/ 85), pancreatic necroses (44/85), peripancreaticfluid collection (46/85) and pancreatic abscess (14/85).
However, if the CT findings are normal in the presence of a high index of clinical suspicion, only larger pulmonary embolism are ruled out, and angiography with the focus on distal pulmonary vasculature should be performed.
Characteristic patterns of the CT findings in determined cerebral diseases are explained.
The clinical diagnoses, including the respective number of cases and the pertinent CT findings, are presented in a Table.
The results demonstrate an increase of pathological CT findings as well as of calcification in the carotid siphon with advanced age.
It could be shown that patients suffering from medium to severe degrees of atrophy-independent of its special location-have a less favorable response than those with normal CT findings.
Conclusion: Most of the adrenal adenomas and malignant tumors can be distinguished by comprehensive analysis of CT features.
Lesions intrinsic to the tentorial hiatus are discussed and the CT features of remote mass effects causing transtentorial herniation described.

The incidence of macrocrania with childhood hydrocephalus and its relationship to the aetiology and other CT features was examined with reference to 109 consecutive cases with hydrocephalus shown on CT.
The CT features of intracerebral toruloma are described and the clinicopathological features briefly reviewed.
CT findings were normal in cases 1 and 2; in case 3, a schwannoma was suspected from the CT appearances.
Therefore, ICP monitoring of patients with bacterial (especially pneumococcal) meningitis who are in prolonged coma should be considered early and regardless of the cranial CT appearances.
