Multiplanar volume rendering and maximum intensity projection of multislice computed tomography data allow for robust evaluation of the hepatic parenchyma, with early detection of neovascularity and tumor stain, and enable better assessment of the tumor burden compared with routine axial images. Lesion characterization can also potentially improve. This is in addition to accurate delineation of the hepatic vascular anatomy, which allows for segmental localization and assists in surgical and nonsurgical planning.
