abstract

  • There are a number of parasitic infections that can affect the liver and biliary tree. These infections can be primarily related to the liver or can include secondary hepatic involvement. Imaging can narrow down the differential diagnosis in the appropriate clinical setting, and can even clinch the diagnosis with some pathognomonic findings. The various imaging modalities can also identify disease extent, help guide management, and demonstrate response to treatment. This pictorial essay will give an overview of parasitic liver infections, and will discuss the best imaging strategies and the key imaging features to help make a timely accurate diagnosis.
