Figure 2 (a-d):Unenhanced C-arm CT images (a,b) acquired just after the sclerosant injection and the corresponding contrast-enhanced MDCT images (c,d) obtained at 7 days after sclerotherapy to assess the sclerosant distribution. The transverse C-arm CT image (a) shows complete fi lling of the target varices (arrow) with sclerosant; this is confi rmed by the corresponding axial CT scan (c), which demonstrates complete thrombosis of the target varices (arrow). The posterior gastric vein is entirely fi lled with the sclerosant (arrow in b), while the sclerosant is partially distributed to the gastrorenal shunt (arrowhead in b). Axial contrast-enhanced CT scan (d) also confi rms that the posterior gastric vein is completely thrombosed (arrow), whereas the gastrorenal shunt remains patent (arrowhead). The sclerosant distribution seen in the unenhanced C-arm CT images coincides with that of the MDCT images
