Portal Vein

Please note this question was answered in 2014. The coding advice may or may not be outdated.

Question:

What is included in code 36481? Is it the main portal, right and left portal, and any of the portal branches? I know if we select the veins off the portal (i.e., SMV, IMV) we can use codes 36011/36012, but does that apply to the portal branches if they are selected?
