Characterisation of liver tumours and prediction of tumour

  1. To learn about multiparametric imaging of liver tumours.
  2. To understand the role of functional criteria of tumour characterisation.
  3. To learn about main functional biomarkers of tumour response.
 

Hepatic cysts: always simple?

  1. To learn about different types of cystic lesions in the liver, including giant biliary hamartomas or foregut cysts.
  2. To understand the diagnostic approach to differentiate simple and complex cysts/cystic lesions.
  3. To appreciate advantages and limitations of imaging for differentiating simple cysts from other cystic lesions.
 

Liver haemangiomas and mimickers

  1. To learn about typical imaging findings of liver haemangioma.
  2. To understand the atypical imaging findings of liver haemangiomas.
  3. To appreciate the role of multiparametric and liver-specific contrast MRI in differentiation between haemangiomas and malignant lesions mimicking haemangiomas.
 

FNH or adenoma?

  1. To learn the imaging features associated with FNH and adenoma on contrast-enhanced CT and MRI.
  2. To understand how the imaging characteristics are related to the underlying pathological findings.
  3. To appreciate the optimal use of liver-specific contrast media for distinguishing between FNH and adenoma, and current classification and pathological characteristics and its impact on the management.
