Distribution of mesenteric and splenic blood flow in cirrhosis of the liver as estimated by radionuclide angiography.

We used radionuclide angiography following an injection of 185 MBq Tc-99m tin colloid as a non-invasive method for measuring the mesenteric and portal components of the total hepatic circulation, according to the method of Fleming et al (J Nucl Med 24; 1983). Fifty-seven patients with cirrhosis and 33 controls were examined. The relative mesenteric flow (MF… (More)
