Abstract

Three-dimensional (3D) imaging is playing an increasingly important role in modern diagnostic radiology. The recent improvements in magnetic resonance (MR) hardware, scanning protocols and 3D volumetric reconstruction software have facilitated great expansion of the role of 3D imaging for use in hepatobiliary surgery. In this review, we address the various 3D reconstruction techniques used in MRI and demonstrate the value of 3D imaging in preoperative evaluation of hepatobiliary diseases.
