abstract

  • A management plan for patients with suspected focal liver lesions which avoids early biopsy includes routine laboratory investigations, ultrasound scanning, and assessment for evidence of extrahepatic metastases and non-hepatic primary tumours. Angiography and computed tomography may also be indicated, and laparotomy or laparoscopy is undertaken to assess any potentially resectable focal liver lesions. The plan requires modification to suit individual circumstances.
