Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Intraoperative studies were conducted to assess the accuracy of intraoperative liver surveillance in characterizing liver masses, differentiating benign from malignant tumors, and in determining resectability of tumors. Results show that intraoperative hepatic sonography is a reliable method for this purpose. The absence of a plane between tumor and IVC wall does not exclude resectability.
