The worldwide consensus aims for an internationally agreed-upon classification of acute pancreatitis severity, with standardized terminology for pancreatitis and its complications. All types of necrotizing pancreatitis may be sterile or infected; gas formation is the best imaging feature to suggest infection. Treatment decisions in the late phase rely heavily on morphologic criteria.
The role of the radiologist is to aid in treatment planning by correctly addressing the morphologic changes. ANCs and WONs are collections that contain both fluid and necrotic material of various amounts an important point to differentiate them from APFCs and pseudocysts, however, in indeterminate cases follow-up is recommended.
The terms pancreatic abscess and intrapancreatic pseudocyst are totally abandoned in this new classification.

The Revised Atlanta Classification of Acute Pancreatitis: A Work Still in Progress?
The revised Atlanta classification is an update of the original Atlanta classification, a standardized clinical and radiologic nomenclature for acute pancreatitis and associated complications based on research advances made over the past 2 decades. Acute pancreatitis is now divided into two distinct subtypes, necrotizing pancreatitis and interstitial edematous pancreatitis IEP , based on the presence or absence of necrosis, respectively. The revised classification system also updates confusing and sometimes inaccurate terminology that was previously used to describe pancreatic and peripancreatic collections. As such, use of the terms acute pseudocyst and pancreatic abscess is now discouraged. Instead, four distinct collection subtypes are identified on the basis of the presence of pancreatic necrosis and time elapsed since the onset of pancreatitis.
