Why is DOPPLER - PORTAL done ?

The portal venous system is responsible for directing blood from parts of the gastrointestinal tract to the liver. Substances absorbed in the small intestine travel first to the liver for processing before continuing to the heart. It also includes venous drainage from the spleen and pancreas. It is used for detecting abnormalities of the hepatic vasculature (blood vessels) in patients.
