abstract

  • Recent developments regarding the treatment of pediatric liver tumors have significantly improved patient care. Stimulated by collaboration between international pediatric groups, advances have been made in surgical techniques, transplantation options, and chemotherapy schemas. In light of this progress, clear understanding of the state-of-the-art imaging evaluation of hepatobiliary tumors has become even more integral to the effective management of children with hepatic neoplasms. The unique imaging features of hepatic neoplasms in the pediatric population, when coupled with supportive demographic data and laboratory findings, can lead to accurate diagnosis and proper treatment of hepatobiliary tumors.
