The anatomy of the mesenteric system and the hepatic arterial bed has a high degree of variation. Although these anatomical variants have been well described in the literature, the characterization and understanding of regional hepatic perfusion in the context of radioembolization continues to be studied in great depth. The aim of this chapter is to provide a thorough discussion and detailed presentation of the management of arterial variants within the context of radioembolization.
