|MRI: Axial abdomen|
This is an axial T1-weighted MRI of the abdomen. An MRI can provide certain details that a CT image cannot. Remember that fat appears bright in a T1-weighted image and connective tissue elements (e.g. ligaments) appear dark. In this particular MRI sequence, moving blood appears black.
Identify the following:
2. falciform ligament with fat around it
9. portal vein
