a: Sonographic study of the liver. There is distention of the intrahepatic portal  vein  system. The cross-sectional diameter of the portal vein at the porta hepatis measured 0.92 cm. The diameter of the aorta at the level of the diaphragm measured IS 0.77 cm. The liver has a slightly patchy  echoic pattern. b: The walls of the hepatic veins are small,  hyperechoic, and thickened relative tothe intralobar  portal veins.

The transverse view of normal canine porta hepatis. Three major vessels in a dorsoventral direction are abdominal aorta (AO), the most dorsal structure, caudal vena cava (CVC) view at margin of the liver and the portal vein (POV) located ventrally (dorsal is to the left, ventral is to the right, and medial is to the bottom).
