With the recent advances in imaging techniques, increased numbers of hepatic lesions are found today, and surgeons are asked frequently for the best course of management. Benign hepatic tumors sometimes cause life-threatening complications and more often trigger disabling or annoying symptoms in otherwise healthy individuals. Although various imaging techniques are quite accurate in identifying cysts and hemangiomas, other benign hepatic lesions, such as adenomas, focal nodular hyperplasia and other benign solid tumors, cannot be differentiated from malignant lesions with a high degree of confidence.
