  • "MDCT with advanced image processing is a powerful tool that may be utilized to identify the imaging features of FNH. These include the presence of large feeding arteries and draining veins, pseudocapsule, central scar, and septations. These features can help in the differentiation of this benign lesion from other hypervascular lesions without the need for additional imaging, biopsy, or surgery."

  • "Three-dimensional MDCT angiography is accurate for classification of hepatic arterial anatomy before hepatic resection. Although 2D datasets show small arteries to better advantage than 3D MDCT angiograms, the 3D MDCT angiograms provide a useful overview of hepatic anatomy."

  • "Routine 3D data evaluation and interpretation offer faster and more thorough assessment of the liver parenchyma than is possible with axial images alone.A new paradigm in hepatic imaging is true volumetric acquisition and display."

  • "Volume rendering, a postprocessing computer algorithm that creates three-dimensional (3D) displays from computed tomography (CT) datasets, can create 3D cholangiographic images (volume-rendered cholangiopancreatography, or VRCP) from intravenous contrast-enhanced abdominal CT datasets without the use of a biliary contrast agent. This article illustrates the utility of VRCP in the setting of biliary obstruction due to pancreatic cancer. The 3D renderings of the intra- and extrahepatic biliary tree provide valuable information for planning biliary drainage, including the location and length of the obstruction as well as the relationship of intrahepatic ducts to liver metastases."

  • "Multiplanar volume rendering and maximum intensity projection of multislice computed tomography data allow for robust evaluation of the hepatic parenchyma, with early detection of neovascularity and tumor stain, and enable better assessment of the tumor burden compared with routine axial images. Lesion characterization can also potentially improve."
