IMAGING AND CYTOPATHOLOGICAL CORRELATION OF SPACE OCCUPYING LESIONS IN LIVER: A PROSPECTIVE OBSERVATIONAL STUDY
Dr. Sachinkumar Patel and Dr. P. B. Nichkaode*
Liver is a common site for Space occupying lesions. It is difficult to distinguish these entities with imaging criteria alone, but certain focal liver lesions have classic ultrasonic, computed tomographic (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features. Development in liver surgery and liver pathology have led to many new types of primary hepatic space-occupying lesions (PHSOLS) being surgically resected and pathologically diagnosed, which has greatly increased the surgicopathological spectrum of primary hepatic space-occupying lesions (PHSOLS). There is a need for an improved practical guide for oncological clinicians and pathologists to make correct diagnoses and differential diagnoses among primary hepatic space-occupying lesions (PHSOLS).
