Abstract

Liver metastases are a very common site of distant metastases. Detection and accurate characterization of liver metastases is of importance to guide therapy. A variety of imaging modalities such as US (including contrast agents), MDCT, MRI with liver –specific contrast agents and PET/CT are available for this purpose. This review presents imaging techniques and summarizes the current knowledge, how the different imaging modalities should be used.
