|Current value of intraoperative ultrasound of the liver in the era of cross-sectional imaging|
Due to its high spatial resolution and by offering a real-time imaging, IOUS continues to be a valuable tool during hepatic surgery.
Although its role in tumor detection has been reduced due to recent advances in preoperative imaging techniques, IOUS still provides additional information for tumor restaging and determining resectability.
In this series it altered surgical plan in 40% of the cases and facilitated the hepatic resection for the surgeon in all patients.
