MACHADO, Márcio Martins et al. Doppler evaluation of liver tumors. Radiol Bras [online]. 2004, vol.37, n.5, pp. 371-376. ISSN 1678-7099. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842004000500012.
Recent advances in ultrasound have optimized the detection of liver tumors and helped to improve the prognosis of patients with this condition as newly developed and improved therapeutic modalities have been established. The authors review important Doppler findings which may help in the identification and characterization of some hepatic tumors through the evaluation of color Doppler, pulsed Doppler and power Doppler features. New imaging methods such as the use of harmonics imaging are also reviewed.
