Abstract

Purpose: To describe the renal vein and inferior vena cava (IVC) anatomy found at abdominal magnetic resonance (MR) angiography. Methods: Gadolinium- enhanced, three-dimensional, time-of-flight MR angiograms of 150 patients were evaluated for the number and configuration of the renal veins, and the number, configuration, and dimensions of the IVC. Data were analyzed with the Student's t-test. Results: Retroaortic left renal veins were found in 7% of patients, circumaortic left renal veins in 5%, multiple right renal veins in 8%, and duplicated IVCs in 0.7%. The length of the infrarenal IVC averaged 94 mm in females and 110 mm in males (p 28 mm) were identified. Conclusion: Variant renal vein and IVC anatomy can be identified at MR angiography.
