This is the second of two volumes that together provide a comprehensive analysis of the embryology, normal anatomy, and pathology of the liver and intrahepatic biliary tract as seen on modern diagnostic imaging techniques. In this second volume, readers will find comprehensive description and illustration of the imaging appearances of tumoral pathologies, both in the "normal liver" and in the context of chronic liver disease and liver cirrhosis. In addition, the imaging findings in relation to different treatment approaches are presented, with extensive coverage of imaging of tumor response and post-treatment changes. The authors are world-leading experts in the field, and the book will be an ideal reference for all members of the radiology community, from residents to experts. It will also aid clinicians during their daily practice.
