Abstract

Imaging of the liver is undertaken for the detection and characterization of suspected primary or secondary neoplasms, prior to planning a surgery or chemotherapy pump placement, for assessing treatment response, for evaluating biliary pathology, and for screening for liver neoplasms in high-risk groups. In this article, we review the advantages and disadvantages of various imaging modalities in the evaluation of the liver and formulate guidelines for the imaging of common clinical indications. A brief review of imaging findings in focal and diffuse liver disease is also presented.
