This book 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 appraised, focusing on new developments in equipment and contrast agents. The interventional therapeutic approaches to primary and secondary hepatic malignancies are then discussed in depth. The volume also covers special topics such as liver tumors in children and hepatic transplantation. This book, written by leading experts from throughout the world, will prove an indispensable source of information for clinicians and researchers involved in the diagnostic and therapeutic management of patients with liver malignancies.
