Liver Imaging Modalities

Imaging of the liver is undertaken for the detection and characterization of suspected primary or secondary neoplasms, prior to planning a surgery or chemotherapy pump placement, for assessing treatment response, for evaluating biliary pathology, and for screening for liver neoplasms in high-risk groups. In this article, we review the advantages and disadvantages of various imaging modalities in the evaluation of the liver and formulate guidelines for the imaging of common clinical indications. A brief review of imaging findings in focal and diffuse liver disease is also presented.

Liver, biliary tract, gallbladder imaging tests incorporate ultrasonography, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, computed tomography, radionuclide scanning, percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, magnetic resonance imaging, simple x-rays and operative cholangiography.

In coming years, it is expected that worldwide Liver Biopsy market will advance with higher growth rate when we compare it with previous years. Rising pressure to control healthcare costs has fuelled the development of the market for Liver Biopsy Market. The global liver biopsy market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period 2017-2023.
