Figure 4: (a) After identifying the ligamentum venosum and then pushing the scope, the hepatic hilum can be seen. On EUS from the stomach, the portal vein (PV) lies the closest to the probe at the hepatic hilum. The hepatic artery (HA) runs between the PV and bile duct (BD). (b) The transverse part of the left portal vein (LPV) can been seen close to the probe by tracing the main portal vein. The liver parenchyma surrounded by the LPV, ligamentum (lig.) venosum, and middle hepatic vein (MHV) is segment 4. The portal vein branch to segment 4 (P4) is identified arising off from the main LPV
