- Therapeutic endoscopy of localized gastric varices: pretherapy screening and posttreatment evaluation with MDCT portography. Hui Zhu; Bei Shi; Upadhyaya, Manavendra; Zhiyuan Wu; Xiaozhu Lin; Yunlin Wu; Kemin Chen // Abdominal Imaging;Feb2010, Vol. 35 Issue 1, p15
Gastric varices are a major cause of gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with portal hypertension. Whatever therapeutic method is used, hemodynamic changes in the portal systemic shunt should be assessed. In this study, we used multi-detector row CT portography as a screening and assessment...

Background/aims: To evaluate the usefulness of multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT) in the postoperative long-term follow-up of biliary atresia (BA) patients for detection of esophagogastric varices due to portal hypertension and intrahepatic bile duct (IHBD) dilatations. Well-developed...
- Computed tomographic features of two cases of acute gastric anisakiasis. Nakajo, Masanori; Setoguchi, Yohki; Onohara, Shinichi; Nakajo, Masayuki // Abdominal Imaging;Oct2011, Vol. 36 Issue 5, p509
Little is known about the detailed computed tomography (CT) features of acute gastric anisakiasis. Our two cases showed transiently swollen gastric folds comprised of the remarkably thickened contrast little-enhanced submucosal layer with little-thickened contrast-enhanced mucosal and...
- Letters to the editor. Sato, Takahiro // Journal of Gastroenterology;Aug2005, Vol. 40 Issue 8, p854

- Evaluation of magnetic resonance angiography in detection of gastric varices. Sato, Takahiro; Yamazaki, Katsu; Toyota, Jouji; Karino, Yoshiyasu; Ohmura, Takumi; Suga, Toshihiro // Journal of Gastroenterology;1999, Vol. 34 Issue 3, p321
Abstract: We evaluated the detection of gastric varices, inflowing blood vessels to gastric varices, and out-flowing blood vessels from gastric varices via magnetic resonance (MR) angiography in 31 patients with gastric varices. Twenty-four patients had F[sub 2] type varices and 7 had F[sub 3]...
