Colorectal Liver Metastases: State of the Art Imaging

Kathryn Jane Fowler et al. Ann Surg Oncol. .

Abstract

Colorectal cancer is a leading cause of death with mortality determined predominately by metastatic involvement of the liver. Treatment of liver metastases continues to evolve and imaging plays an essential role in initial staging, preoperative planning, and treatment monitoring. This review article discusses the current role of imaging in the management of patients with colorectal liver metastases. Particular challenges such as hepatic steatosis, disappearing metastases, and following treated lesions are addressed.
