Abstract

The evaluation of hepatic diseases in children is often a multimodality process, requiring multiple imaging tests to determine the cause and extent of an abnormality. Ultrasound (US), computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have distinct roles to play in the evaluation of hepatic disease in children. This article addresses the hepatic and biliary lesions that are unique or more common in children and describes their cross-sectional imaging characteristics. In addition, the techniques and protocols for US, CT, and MRI are reviewed.
