Abstract

To evaluate diagnostic computed tomographic (CT) angiograms of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts (TIPS), helical CT angiography was performed in 10 patients with (n = 7) or without (n = 3) shunt dysfunction. CT angiography was performed with 3-mm-thick sections, pitch of 1, 120 kV, and 180-220 mA, after injection of 150 mL nonionic contrast material at 5 mL/sec, with a 50-second scanning delay after initiation of injection. All patients underwent transjugular portography within 1 week after CT angiography. In all cases, CT angiography correctly showed the presence or absence of the abnormality. These preliminary data suggest that CT angiography can provide diagnostic images of normal and abnormal TIPS.
