Abstract

The aim of this review is to present the wide spectrum of common and uncommon focal liver diseases affecting neonatal and pediatric liver transplant candidates, analyzed using ultrasonography (US), 16 or 64-multidetector row helical CT (MDCT) and 1.5 T magnetic resonance (MR) fast imaging. Correlation of imaging findings and explanted liver or histology is illustrated in representative cases. Associated uncommon congenital anomalies are shown.
