Aims and objectives

Intraoperative ultrasound (IOUS) has been an important imaging tool for guiding hepatic surgery since its inception in the early 1980s [1-3]. In fact, it has long been considered as the most sensitive and reliable technique for detecting and localizing  hepatic lesions as well as their association with major vascular structures [4,5].

But with modern progresses in preoperative cross-sectional imaging of the liver, especially with the inception of multislice computed tomography and diffusion weighted imaging in MRI [6-9], its role has become controversed [10-13].

The purpose of our study was to determine if IOUS still provides new information about hepatobiliary lesions , locoregional staging and vascular anatomy in comparison with cross-sectional imaging. Our aim was also to evaluate  IOUS's impact on surgical strategy.
