Direct portography and contrast-enhanced computed tomography: evaluating the rabbit liver
The authors of this study pursued two goals: the description of the incidence of anatomic variation of the portal system using direct portography and the estimation of the liver and caudate lobe volume by using contrast-enhanced computed tomography.
- Direct portography provides information about rabbit liver portal anatomy and its variations
- The caudate and cranial lobes are separated, allowing both areas to be studied independently
- Manual delineation of the liver lobes by contrast-enhanced computed tomography provides volumetric information
