OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the segmental anatomy of the right hemiliver and to assess whether the right hepatic vein and right portal trunk are accurate indicators of the position of the right and transverse scissurae, respectively. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We examined 26 patients with spiral CT using 5-mm slices, reconstructed at 2-mm intervals. Three-dimensional renderings of the portal and hepatic venous structures were created. The portal ramification pattern and… CONTINUE READING
