Ultrasound of focal hepatic lesions



Ultrasound of focal hepatic lesions



Seminars in Roentgenology 30(4): 324-346



Hepatic sonography is useful in characterizing many focal liver lesions (Tables 2-6). It is safe, portable, and relatively inexpensive. With the development of color Doppler imaging, power Doppler imaging, and intravenous-ultrasound contrast agents, the ability to detect and precisely diagnose a focal hepatic lesion may be improved.
