Atlanta Classification for Acute Pancreatitis

Type of acute pancreatitis Duration Collections CT description
Interstitial edematous pancreatitis < 4 weeks Acute Peripancreatic Fluid Collections
Homogeneous fluid density collection confined by normal peripancreatic fascial planes. No definable wall encapsulating. Adjacent to the pancreas (no intrapancreatic extension)
>4 weeks Pseudocyst Well circumscribed, usually round or oval homogeneous fluid density. No non-liquid component. Well defined wall; completely encapsulated
Necrotizing pancreatitis < 4 weeks Acute Necrotic Collections
Heterogeneous, non-liquid density of varying degrees (some appear homogeneous early in the course). No definable wall encapsulating the collection.Location: Intrapancreatic and/ or extrapancreatic
>4 weeks Walled-off Necrosis (WON Heterogeneous, liquid, and non-liquid density with varying degrees of loculations (some may appear homogeneous). Well-defined wall; completely encapsulated. Location:Intrapancreatic and/or extrapancreatic
