Pancreatic Ductal AdenoCarcinoma (PDAC), one of the most common exocrine pancreas cancer, is characterised by a particular shaded appearance on MDCT images, that makes very hard a clear identification of its border. Moreover, clinical experience states that the actual size of the tumour is usually bigger than evaluated on MDCT, suggesting that part of the tumour is not-visible on MDCT. We propose higher-order statistics as an approach to detect grayscale differences non-visible to human eye.
