Abstract :

The differential diagnosis of solid liver lesions is broad, but many can be diagnosed noninvasively. In some cases, predominantly solid liver lesions may have cystic components, as may be seen with hemangiomas or tumors that have areas that are necrotic. Conversely, predominantly cystic liver lesions may have solid areas, particularly in the setting of malignancy. This topic will review the differential diagnosis of solid and some cystic liver lesions, outline an approach to their evaluation, discuss the radiographic findings associated with common lesions and address the approach to malignant liver lesions and their management. Finally, directions in the management of metastatic liver disease are discussed.
