About the Authors
  • Primary carcinomas of the liver are increasing in incidence in the developed world, probably due to dietary and environmental factors as well as the known role of infective agents such as Hepatitis C. They are usually diagnosed in the advanced stages and carry high morbidity and mortality. This volume summarises the latest developments in imaging of primary hepatic carcinomas, emphasising the multidisciplinary approach to the care of patients. In addition to extensive chapters on the radiological issues surrounding diagnosis and staging of the malignancies, individual chapters on epidemiology, pathology, and surgical and non-surgical treatment options are included. All treatment options are considered for both HCC and cholangiocarcinoma, including newer techniques such as TACE. Only by a well orchestrated multidisciplinary team approach including epidemiologists, diagnostic radiologists, hepatologists, oncologic surgeons, radiation oncologists, and pathologists can these complex malignancies be managed successfully.

    • Reviews the key imaging findings for both common and uncommon liver neoplasms
    • Concise, practical discussion of the use of imaging by an international team of experts from all members of the multidisciplinary cancer care team
    • Evaluates each imaging modality used in the diagnosis and staging of primary liver carcinomas, advising on the most appropriate imaging test
    • Both surgical and non-surgical treatment options reviewed
