Core Tip Predicting the patient at a risk of variceal bleeding is extremely important and receives a great deal of attention, paving the way for primary prophylaxis either using medical treatment including carvedilol or propranolol, or endoscopic band ligation. Endoscopic examination and the hepatic venous pressure gradient are the gold standards in the diagnosis and prediction of variceal bleeding. The computed tomography (CT) is a widely used non-invasive, radiological examination that can be used as a predictor of variceal bleeding and has many advantages. Conflicting results have been shown regarding the effectiveness of CT in predicting variceal bleeding and more studies are needed.
