Ultrasound is the initial imaging modality for assessment of porta hepatis lymph nodes, vascular and biliary pathology.

Porta hepatis lymphadenopathy, is best diagnosed morphologically by CECT and functionally by PET/CT.

Contrast-enhanced CT is considered to be the ‘gold standard’ in the diagnostics of the vascular lesions and PH tumours.


MRI & MRCP is the main stay in diagnosing biliary pathology.


Image-guided interventions including angiography, ERCP and endoscopic ultrasound are important in diagnosis and non-surgical management of porta hepatis pathologies.
