  • Claude L’Herminé
Part of the Series in Radiology book series (SERA, volume 11)


Three main angiographic elements permit the obstruction to the portal inflow to be recognized as well as its degree and its progression rate to be evaluated. These are:
  • The quality of portal opacification on the venous phase of superior mesenteric arteriography;

  • The spleen pattern;

  • The hepatic artery changes.
