Abstract

Portal scintigraphy is a quick noninvasive method to the diagnosis of portosystemic shunts in dogs and cats. Scintigraphic procedures have evolved over the past 25 years. Currently, trans-splenic portal scintigraphy is the preferred method. High quality studies can be obtained with small radiopharmaceutical doses.
