Radiology Grand Rounds: Clinical Applications Of Liver Doppler
Embryological experiments in animal models have demonstrated that liver development occurs through a progressive series of reciprocal tissue interactions between the embryonic endoderm and nearby mesoderm. In the last ten years many of the genes and molecular pathways that regulate hepatogenesis have been identified. Dr. Madrazo will discuss the use of Doppler to assess hepatic embryogenesis and help in the timely diagnosis of portal vein thrombosis.
Emergency Medicine Physicians, Family Practice Physicians, Internal Medicine Physicians, General Surgeons, Gastroenterologists, Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, Nurses, Respiratory Therapists and all other interested healthcare professionals.
- Describe hepatic embryogenesis and detail hepatic vascular shunts.
- Assess hemodynamics changes associated with portal and systemic venous thrombosis (budd-chiari).
- Implement Doppler assessment of transjugular intrahepatic shunts (tips) to improve patient outcomes.
