Abstract

Quantitative hepatobiliary scintigraphy using 99mTc-mebrofenin was performed on 8 normal cats and on the same cats after induction of experimental cholangiohepatitis by infection with the liver fluke Platynosomum concinnum. Hepatobiliary scintigraphy was performed 3 times at 10 weeks, 4 months and...

Abstract

This article discusses the classifications of prehepatic vascular anomalies in small animals such as dogs and cats focusing on the congenital intrahepatic and extrahepatic portosystemic shunts. This paper also discusses the diagnosis of hepatic vascular disease with emphasis on the role of...

Abstract

Five cats with a congenital portosystemic shunt (CPSS) were examined using transcolonic portal scintigraphy before and after surgical ligation of the shunting vessel. The mean shunt index before surgery was 52% (range 45 to 61%). Repeat portal scintigraphy, 6 to 8 weeks after surgery, indicated a...

AbstractFull Text

There are many modalities of diagnostic imaging for confirming diagnosis of portosystemic shunt in dogs and cats. Contrast radiography could be performed by contrast media injection into veins such as portovenography, mesenteric portography and splenoportography. These techniques are common used in ...

Abstract

Hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HBS) was performed in 10 cats with histologically documented hepatobiliary disease. The scintigraphic patterns were classified into 1 of 5 categories: normal, primary hepatocellular dysfunction, primary intrahepatic cholestasis, mixed hepatocellular and intrahepatic...

Abstract

Hepatobiliary scintigraphy was used on 10 cats to determine cardiac washout (≤2 min) and time of maximum hepatic activity (≤5 min) and hepatic washout (≤30 min). The gallbladder response to synthetic cholecystokinin was ≤3 min. Additional measurements also were identified. Potential use of...

Abstract

Portosystemic shunts (PSSs) are anomalous vascular communications between the portal vein or its branches and the systemic venous system. Signalment, history, clinical signs, and laboratory findings can already provide a presumptive diagnosis of a PSS. However, imaging techniques such as...
