Portal flow is believed to relate to liver regeneration and may reflect the hemodynamic change of liver cirrhosis. So far, it has been relied on Doppler examination, which only sampled in local two-dimensional (2D) acquisition planes. Recently, four-dimensional (4D) flow acquisition of MRI may provide more accurate vascular flow information. However, there have been only a few studies of the liver in the literature.
