Twenty-eight patients with selective and nonselective shunts for portal hypertension were evaluated using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Angiographic correlation was obtained in 25 patients. MR imaging enabled the detection of a patent shunt by visualizing the "flow void" phenomenon in 21 patients. Two patients had thrombosed shunts. In these 23 patients, there was no discrepancy between the findings from MR imaging and those from angiography. In the remaining five patients, there was an area… CONTINUE READING
