Pulsed Doppler duplex sonography and CT of portal vein thrombosis

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Five patients with partial or complete portal vein thrombosis were examined by both computed tomography (CT) and pulsed Doppler duplex scanning. Duplex scanning correctly identified portal vein thrombosis in all five. Duplex sonography may be the preferred technique to detect and follow portal vein thrombosis because of lower cost, lack of need for intravenous contrast material, and easier availability for multiple follow-up examinations.
