Abnormal Intrahepatic Vascular Shunt: rule of high sensitive color doppler and contrast harmonic imaging

CONCLUSIONS

The high sensitive color Doppler with the evaluation of the blood flow direction allows us an effective study of portoportal and portosystemic venous shunts.

Contrast harmonic imaging permits an adequate evaluation of the site and the degree of the arterioportal and arterio - systemic shunting.
