OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to evaluate the performance of liver CT in the diagnosis of esophageal varices in patients with cirrhosis and to determine whether thin-section multiplanar reconstructions (MPRs) improve accuracy. MATERIALS AND METHODS We identified 109 patients with cirrhosis who underwent endoscopy within 10 weeks after dual-phase liver MDCT supplemented with thin-section axial and coronal portal venous phase reconstructions. Two blinded radiologists independently… CONTINUE READING
