Abstract

Nowadays, the most common imaging techniques allow to study focal liver lesions with high diagnostic accuracy but a relatively recent emerging field of interest is represented by diffuse liver disease. They include a variegated series of storage and metabolic pathologies (ie, iron overload disorders and steatosis) requiring a precise diagnosis not always possible at imaging due to the overlapping of findings at conventional ultrasound, CT, or MR studies.In recent years, several imaging tecniques and specific softwares have been developed, especially for ultrasound and MR imaging, in order to identify different parameters useful in the noninvasive recognition and follow-up of these diffuse processes involving the liver.The aim of this article is to describe the most common and useful imaging findings of the most common and uncommon diffuse liver diseases illustrating the newest imaging technologies and developments at our disposal with corresponding advantages, limitations, and pitfalls.
