BACKGROUND A small liver volume is considered to be a poor prognostic factor in cirrhosis, often indicative of advanced liver disease. Radiologic assessment of liver volume before liver transplant is routinely performed in many transplant centers. We sought to assess the accuracy and significance of computed tomographic (CT) scanning in hepatic volumetric analysis by correlating CT-derived estimation of liver volume with that of corresponding liver explants. METHODS A chart review of all… CONTINUE READING
