Surgically staged focal liver lesions: accuracy and reproducibility of dual-phase helical CT for detection and characterization.

Abstract

PURPOSE To assess the accuracy and reproducibility of dual-phase helical computed tomography (CT) in enabling preoperative detection and characterization of surgically staged focal liver lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Surgically and histopathologically proven liver lesions were evaluated by three experienced CT readers. These lesions were present in 77… (More)
