Carlo Fabbri et al. The endoscopic ultrasound features of pancreatic fluid collections and their impact on therapeutic decisions: an interobserver agreement study

Among 12 EUS experts who evaluated 50 video clips of PFCs, there was poor-to-moderate agreement for the determination of PFC type and morphological features such as the percentage solid component and signs of infection. On therapeutic decisions, such as type of stent to use and the need for and timing of direct necrosectomy, there was moderate-to-substantial agreement. These findings indicate the need for standardization of the morphological criteria for EUS assessment of PFCs.
