4D flow MRI offers the possibility for complete volumetric and functional assessment of liver blood flow in patients with liver cirrhosis. This study reveals a significant difference when using a lower venc for visualization of the portal vein branches. Similar results are obtained for contrast application and different field strengths. For qualitative assessment of the intrahepatic branches by 4D flow MRI a lower venc is recommended.
