C. Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour (Islet cell tumour)
- The main differential diagnosis of a large solid mass at the tail of the pancreas isodense to normal pancreatic parenchyma with calcifications that enhances post contrast injection is non functional neuroendocrine tumor.

Functional neuroendocrine tumors demonstrate very small hypervascular lesions on dynamic contrast enhanced CT.
