Objective: To explore the prognostic value of CT enhancement degree of pancreatic cancer in pancreatic cancer. Methods: From January 2019 to January 2022, 50 patients with pancreatic cancer who came to our hospital for pathological confirmation were selected. Prior to surgery, use multiphase CT of the pancreas to complete enhanced scans. After surgery, the patient's survival period, clinical treatment effectiveness, and imaging data are used as research variables. In the scanning diagnosis, it is necessary to collect the patient's age, gender, tumor location and size, differentiation process, CT value, etc. Create a mathematical model based on the collected data and complete the experimental research work. Results: Univariate analysis showed that the prognosis of pancreatic cancer patients with higher enhancement degree in each stage (P<0.05 in each stage) was better. Multivariate analysis showed that tumor differentiation (P=0.0118), TNM staging (P=0.004), and portal vein enhancement (P<0.001) can be independent predictors of patient prognosis. Conclusion: The lower the CT enhancement degree of pancreatic cancer, the worse the prognosis.
