Nodular regenerative hyperplasia of the liver in Budd-Chiari syndrome: CT and MR features
Elasticity Imaging Techniques
Portasystemic Shunt, Transjugular Intrahepatic
We report the imaging findings of spiral computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and MR angiography in a patient with nodular regenerative hyperplasia of the liver associated with Budd-Chiari syndrome. Spiral CT showed multiple enhancing nodules during the hepatic arterial and portal venous phases. MR images showed multiple hyperintense nodules on T1-weighted images and hypointense or isointense nodules on T2-weighted images. MR angiography showed thrombotic occlusion of three hepatic veins, suggesting Budd-Chiari syndrome.
