About this book


In the past few years, striking progress has been made in the diagnosis and treatment of liver malignancies. This book, written by leading experts from throughout the world, provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the role of diagnostic and interventional radiology in respect of liver malignancies. Following background chapters on anatomy, epidemiology, and clinicopathologic features, each of the diagnostic imaging techniques is carefully discussed and appraised, focusing on new developments in equipment and contrast agents. The interventional therapeutic approaches to primary and secondary hepatic malignancies are then described in depth. In particular, full consideration is given to newer sophisticated techniques of liver tumor ablation. The volume also includes special topics such as liver tumors in children and hepatic transplantation. This book will prove an indispensable source of information for clinicians and researchers involved in the diagnostic and therapeutic management of patients with liver malignancies.
