About this book

Few fields of medicine have witnessed such impressive progress as the diagnosis and treatment of liver tumors. Advances in imaging technology, the development of novel contrast agents, and the introduction of optimized scanning protocols have greatly facilitated the non-invasive detection and characterization of focal liver lesions. Furthermore, image-guided techniques for percutaneous tumor ablation have become an accepted alternative treatment for patients with inoperable liver cancer. This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the role of diagnostic and interventional radiology in respect of liver tumors. The volume moves from background sections on methodology and segmental liver anatomy to the main sections on the diagnosis of benign and malignant liver lesions. An integrated approach, focused on the correlation of ultrasound, CT, and MR imaging findings, is presented. Finally, a full section describes the principles, methods, and results of percutaneous tumor ablation techniques.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"For anybody working in the field of upper abdominal imaging this is an excellent book."

"This is a comprehensive review of liver pathology, with even the rarest conditions being mentioned, but does not lose the big picture of what is common needing most description."

"This is well-illustrated and, for any general radiologist or technologist who has puzzled over what that funny blob in the liver might be, brings it all together in a clear an easily read text."

[RAD Magazine, October, 2005]

"This book is intended to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the role of diagnostic and interventional radiology in focal liver lesions. … A number of authors who are authorities in their fields have produced a useful text for the clinician who needs a complete, easy-to-read source of information … . The individual chapters are homogenous and well structured. Understanding of the text is aided by the wealth of high-quality illustrations. … This book will be an excellent source of information … ." (M. Lazzaroni, Digestive and Liver Disease, Vol.37, 2005)

"This book provides a comprehensive review of the role of diagnostic and interventional radiology in the management of liver tumors. … The aim of this book is to analyze the growing place of liver imaging in diagnosis and treatment of liver lesions. Using an impressive number of high-quality illustrations, this book constitutes an excellent up-to-date review of our current knowledge on the radiological approach to liver tumor and can be recommended for all physicians dealing with this field of liver pathology." (M. Scotté, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, Vol. 27 (4), 2005)
