Advances in imaging techniques for the diagnosis of focal hepatic lesions



Advances in imaging techniques for the diagnosis of focal hepatic lesions



Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology 14(Suppl. ): S22-S27



In the past few years, tremendous advances have been made in the fields of ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and contrast agent development. The purpose of this article is to highlight the important developments in imaging techniques that can be used for detection and characterization of focal hepatic lesions.
