Abstract

Two-phase helical CT and MRI, including MR angiography and dynamic studies, are useful for the diagnosis of patent ductus venosus and congenital absence of the portal vein. MRI may more effectively reveal hepatic lesions than two-phase helical CT under such abnormal conditions in which the liver has only the arterial but not the portal blood supply.
