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."

From the Back Cover
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.
