When all signs point to a potential liver shunt, the pressure is on! It is essential to acquire precise imaging of the liver and the portal hilus to deliver the diagnosis with confidence.
Dr. Eric Lindquist imaged this smaller than average feline patient and nailed it with a diagnosis of a definitive splenocaval shunt utilizing SDEP™ positions 13 and 14 along with Doppler evaluation.
Special thanks to Dr. Kristen Casulli, Dr. Chris Hallihan, and the attentive staff at Animal Care Centers of Flanders for the management of this case.
