Abstract

The anatomy of the portal vein branches in the caudate lobe of the liver was studied in 20 patients by double-phase CT arterial portography (DP-CTAP). DP-CTAP provided excellent images of the portal venous system in the first phase and the perfusion defects of intrahepatic tumors in the second phase. From DP-CTAP images of the first phase, a sufficient number of interpolated images were created for a smooth paging display. The ramifying structures of the portal system were traced on the monitor using the tracking ball. This method was found to be very effective and reliable for the anatomical assessment of the caudate lobe. The number and origins of the caudal portal branches were investigated in each case, and the caudate lobe of the liver could be divided into right and left segments.
