Choice of modality
Initial tumor detection:
- CT of liver tumors, often as part of a general abdominal CT, is generally the investigation of choice to look for metastases of recently diagnosed cancers in the abdomen.
- MRI of liver tumors is reserved for those patients unable to receive intravenous contrast or with a fatty liver.
- Ultrasonography of liver tumors is indicated in patients with chronic liver disease that increases the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma.
