Computed tomography (CT) examination of the liver has continually been improving our understanding and assessment of liver disease since its introduction into clinical practice. The hallmark of the advances in CT imaging has undoubtably been helical CT, which made a great impact on body imaging with its many advantages, the most important being optimization of multiphasic enhanced studies, CT hepatic angiography (CTHA), and CT arterial portography (CTAP). Various applications and protocols of CT imaging rendering advantages and drawbacks to the technique are highlighted in this review article. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
