This article describes the distribution of the intra-hepatic portal vein system by means of anatomy, radiology and ultrasound echo-scan approach. Five anatomical resin-embedded vein preparations with posterior corrosion have been done. The portal tree was depicted by radiology. Ultrasound B-mode and Doppler Scans were performed on 13 beagle dogs. These procedures allowed the authors to compare the three-dimensional preparations with the two-dimensional imaging methods.

KEY WORDS: Canine; Portal vein anatomy; Portography; Ultrasonography; Doppler.
