Liver metastases are among the most common malignant liver lesions. Treatment options for liver metastases vary widely and depend mainly on imaging findings. Liver imaging in patients with liver metastases involves detection, characterization, staging, pretreatment evaluation, and assessment of response to treatment of metastases. In this chapter, we will discuss the role of MRI with special emphasis on functional techniques (diffusion-weighted imaging and dynamic contrast-enhanced imaging) for the diagnosis and management of liver metastases.
