Figure 1 (a-d):Comparative images during balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous sclerotherapy for gastric varices in a 64-yearold man with liver cirrhosis related to hepatitis C. Axial CT scans during arterial portography (a) and contrast-enhanced C-arm CT (c) both show gastric varices located at the gastric fornix with the same confi guration (arrows). Frontal image of a balloon-occluded retrograde venogram from the left adrenal vein (b) delineates probable gastric varices (arrow) that were confi rmed as target varices by referring to the corresponding contrast-enhanced C-arm CT coronal image (arrow) (d)
