Non-contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance venography using magnetization-prepared rapid gradient-echo (MPRAGE) in the preoperative evaluation of living liver donor candidates: Comparison with conventional computed tomography venography.

OBJECTIVE To compare the diagnostic performance of non-contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance venography using magnetization-prepared rapid gradient-echo (MPRAGE-MRV) and conventional computed tomography venography (CTV) in preoperative evaluation of venous tributaries for living donor liver transplantation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board… CONTINUE READING
