Diagnosis of Liver Disease 2nd ed. 2019 Edition

Diagnosis of Liver Disease 2nd ed. 2019 EditionThis book guides practitioners in the assessment of patients with a liver problem. The emphasis is on the role of macro- and microscopic pathology in elucidating pathogenesis as well as identifying confounding features of image findings that may lead to a more elaborate differential diagnosis.

If appropriate, the role of light and electron microscopic examination, along with the role of specific stains and molecular techniques, is illustrated. In addition, the concept of each liver disease is summarized briefly and its up-to-data is provided, and unresolved problems in diagnosis, treatment, and pathogenesis are clearly described.
The approach in this book is a practical one with a focus on the evaluation of illustrative cases, simultaneously demonstrating cross-sectional images (ultrasonography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and angiography), pathological findings, and peritoneoscopic images.
The diagnosis and therapy are summed up in helpful tables, and association of clinical manifestations with image analysis and pathological findings is shown to be important in differential diagnosis and treatment. With the authors comprising internationally renowned experts, this book will serve as a useful source of information for medical students, physicians, internists, hepatologists, gastroenterologists, radiologists, and pathologists worldwide.

1.1 Anatomy of the Liver

The liver weighing 1200–1500 g is the largest organ in the human adult and occupies about 2% of body weight. There are two anatomical lobes in the liver, right and left, with the right lobe six times in volume than the left lobe. The right and left lobes are separated anteriorly by the falciform ligament, posteriorly by ligamentum venosum, and inferiorly by ligamentum teres.

The Couinaud classification [1] defines eight segments of the liver, and the Bismuth classification [2] divides it into four sectors; they are subdivided into right anterior (V and VIII), right posterior (VI and VII), left medial (IV), or left lateral (II and III) segment and caudate lobe (I) (Fig. 1.1). The liver receives double blood supply from the portal vein and hepatic artery.

The portal vein brings about 65% of hepatic blood flow to the liver from the intestine and spleen, while the
hepatic artery brings the remainder 35% from the celiac axis. These vessels enter the liver through the porta hepatis. Inside……………..
