What is wrong with the great vessels of the abdomen?
The distal or infrarenal segment of the inferior vena cava is to the left of the aorta and spine, compatible with a left-sided inferior vena cava or transposition of the inferior vena cava
What is the other term for transposition of the inferior vena cava?
Left-sided inferior vena cava
This venous anomaly crosses anterior or posterior to the aorta?
The left-sided inferior vena cava can cross either anterior or posterior to the aorta at the level of the renal veins.
What early veins form the inferior vena cava?
The inferior vena cava is formed by the successive development and regression of three paired veins, the posterior cardinal, subcardinal, and supracardinal systems
Coronal and axial images of the abdomen show the location of the IVC in relation to the aorta.
The distal inferior vena cava is to the left of the aorta and spine, then it crosses the midline to the right of the aorta at the level of the renal veins.
Other findings in the provided images are liver parenchymal lesions suspicious for neoplasm, cholecystolithiasis, retroperitoneal lymphadenopathy, and calcified plaques in the aorta.
