Conference paper
Part of the Syllabus book series (SYLLABUS)


This course describes the major focal and diffuse diseases of the liver that have significant imaging findings. A multimodality approach is used in integrating findings on scintigraphy, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging.
