This review article focuses on gastroduodenal and pancreatic surgeries with the goal of identifying radiologic findings that translate to important surgical considerations. The topics covered include partial gastrectomy with reconstruction techniques, total gastrectomy, pancreaticoduodenectomy, and pancreaticojejunostomy. Indications, contraindications, surgical techniques, and postoperative imaging are described within each of these topics. Knowledge of these surgical techniques is extremely helpful for the interpreting radiologists to identify expected postoperative anatomy and related complications that would remain clinically relevant to our surgical colleagues and direct timely patient management.
