Liver and biliary system: Evaluation by multidetector CT

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

CT commonly is indicated for the evaluation of suspected hepatic and biliary pathology. The recent introduction of multidetector CT (MDCT) provides unique capabilities that are valuable especially in hepatic volume acquisitions, combining short scan times, narrow collimation, and the ability to obtain multiphase data. These features result in improved lesion detection and characterization. Concomitant advances in computer software programs have made three-dimensional applications practical for a range of hepatic image analyses and displays. This article discusses the specific areas of hepatic and biliary pathology where MDCT has a significant diagnostic impact.
