Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides a noninvasive technique to evaluate the hepatic vasculature. Angiographic and flow-based techniques include intrinsic properties of MRI as well as those that use contrast media. Clinical and technical perspectives of a wide range of vascular disorders affecting the liver, particularly cirrhosis and portal hypertension, portal vein obstruction, as well as imaging of the vasculature prior to and postliver transplantation are presented in this article.
