Core Tip Considering the high incidence of pancreatic cystic neoplasms (PCN) in general population and the low risk of malignant progression in these patients, health care providers need to consider cost-effective follow up programs. Current guidelines advise only magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) surveillance for the routine follow up of these patients. This image-based surveillance carries issues concerning accessibility and high costs. The present retrospective analysis enrolling 200 patients has demonstrated that a modified surveillance based on ultrasound and restricted use of MRI is both safe and significantly more cost effective. However, this retrospective study needs confirmation by a prospective randomized controlled clinical trial comparing the two follow up regimens in patients with non-surgical PCN.
