Free RABitt - Sonography in Portal Hypertension (PHT) - Diagnosis and Treatment

16-02-2023 7:00 pm -8:00 pm

Presenter Marilyn Zelesco: Western Australian trained diagnostic radiographer

Marilyn Zelesco

Portal hypertension is the haemodynamic abnormality associated with the most severe complications of cirrhosis, including ascites, hepatic encephalopathy and
bleeding from gastroesophageal varices. It is characterised by an increase in portal venous pressure and high mortality. Non-invasive testing such as ultrasound is
pivotal to diagnosis and monitoring. Multiple gray scale and doppler findings have been proposed as markers of underlying portal hypertension. This talk discusses the role of ultrasound in assessing the pathways and sequelae of portal hypertension. It also covers sonography of TIPSS (trans-jugular intrahepatic portal systemic shunts), which is a leading treatment option.

Presenter: Marilyn Zelesco is a Western Australian trained diagnostic radiographer who gained a post graduate ultrasound qualification in 1991. Marilyn completed her Masters in Ultrasound through the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2007. Marilyn has received professional awards from the Australian Institute of Radiography, the Australian Sonographers Association and the Australian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine. Marilyn is the Lead Sonographer at the Fiona Stanley Hospital in Perth. Marilyn has an interest in hepatic, bowel and male reproductive tract ultrasound, elastography, CEUS, renal transplants, research, education and sonography in indigenous health care.
