Radiologic and pathologic features of common and/or critical tumor or tumor-like diagnoses (lesions) of the liver are discussed within. Hepatocellular lesions (focal nodular hyperplasia, hepatocellular adenoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, and hepatoblastoma), biliary lesions (mucinous cystic neoplasm and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma), vascular mesenchymal lesions (cavernous hemangioma, epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, and hepatic angiosarcoma), and metastatic malignancies are the primary focus, although a more comprehensive list of lesions is also provided. Definitions, distributions, gross appearances and microscopic pathological features are introduced first, followed by radiologic correlation. Multiple imaging modalities are explored with an emphasis on those that provide the greatest value for the lesion under evaluation. A common understanding of the features of both diagnostic specialties will allow for high-quality correlation and subsequent high-quality patient care. Representative images highlighting important features are also presented.
