The contribution of various techniques to the diagnosis of hepatic angioma has been evaluated retrospectively in 32 patients.

Abstract

The contribution of various techniques to the diagnosis of hepatic angioma has been evaluated retrospectively in 32 patients. The features characterizing hepatic angioma in each technique (ultrasound, Doppler-ultrasound, computed tomography, angiography, scintigraphy, nuclear magnetic resonance) have also been evaluated. The results support the primary role of ultrasound for detecting hepatic lesions and for monitoring their evolution, because of the high sensitivity and of the easy availability of the technique. Doubts on the nature of the lesions should be resolved by using techniques with a higher specificity: scintigraphy for lesions larger than 3 cm in diameter, and computed tomography or nuclear magnetic resonance for lesions of even smaller sizes.
