Identification of efferent flow in the superior vena cava and azygos vein confluence using cine phase-contrast MRI: speculation of the role of the azygos arch valves.

Abstract

PURPOSE We aimed to evaluate flow patterns in the superior vena cava (SVC) and azygos vein confluence with cine phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging with consideration for the role played by the azygos arch valves. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two-dimensional cine phase-contrast magnetic resonance images of the SVC and azygos vein confluence were… (More)
