Radiological Detection and Assessment of Tumor Response
The liver is the most common site of metastatic spread in malignancies. In autopsy studies, the incidence of hepatic metastases is up to 100 % dependent on the primary tumor. Even if this fact represents the final status of a malignancy, about half of all patients dying from a malignant disease will have apparent hepatic metastases. The risk of developing hepatic metastases varies widely among different types of primary malignancy.
