Abstract

A case of cavernomatous transformation of the portal vein demonstrated by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is reported. Correlative images on scintigraphy and ultrasound are included. As in other vascular abnormalities, MR imaging is capable of depicting the findings noninvasively.

Key words

Portal vein, cavernomatous transformation Magnetic resonance imaging, portal vein, abdominal vessels
